Google Opens Fire on Skype with Gmail Calling

Gmail users can now make free calls to the U.S. and Canada using Google's new "Call phone" feature. The new service also works with Google Voice and will display your Voice number on the outbound caller ID. The service offers inexpensive calling rates to the U.K., France, Germany, China and Japan, among other countries, starting as low as $0.02 per minute. The new Google Call service is rolling out now to U.S. users, and the feature will appear as part of the Google Chat options in the Gmail Web interface.
I downloaded/installed the plug-in and when I log into Gmail there still isn't anything to allow me to place a call. Have tried with both Firefox and Chrome.
