How to make free calls to the US and Canada

To call overseas, you don't need a landline. Just download a VoIP app on your smartphone and you'll be able to call the US or Canada for free

Nowadays making international calls is quite easy. Just use a VoIP service or an app like Skype. This second option is also free. The problem is that not all people have such a service and therefore it is not possible to reach anyone abroad.

Unfortunately, on theĀ Internet you can find plenty of alternative services to make international calls. These programs allow us to reach any phone number, fixed or mobile, abroad. And they allow us to make calls even if the receiver is not subscribed to the same service or has not downloaded the same application we are using. To use these programs in most cases it is necessary to have an active connection. Regardless of whether this is in Wi-Fi or data connection. Here is a list of the best applications to make calls in the United States and Canada.

Google Hangouts

Hangouts was conceived by Google as a VoIP service that would act as a counterpart to the now obsolete Google Talk. To use it, all you have to do is download the mobile app or go to Google+ from your PC and then install the browser extension. With this service you can make free calls and video calls in both the United States and Canada. And also in other countries scattered around the world. Also, countries that are not included in the free service have very low costs per call.


This is one of the most versatile applications for making calls abroad. In fact, it can be used on Windows as well as Mac, Linux, and even on iOS and Android. With iCall we can call free phone numbers, fixed and mobile, in the United States and Canada. Be careful, however, calls cannot exceed 5 minutes.


This is a smartphone application recommended for those who often make international calls. VoIP Yo has customized plans with very low charges for calls to any country. While calls within the United States and Canada are free.

VoIP Buster

This is a very versatile service. In fact, it offers free calls to over 30 different countries scattered around the world. And among them, of course, are the United States and Canada. However, the free calls are not unlimited. We'll have 30 minutes per week. VoIP Buster can be installed through an extension on your PC or downloaded as an app on your smartphone.
