It is only because Google launched Google voice in India with integration into hangouts offering free calling to USA and Canada that Microsoft started offering this free calling to not lose out on its subscriber base, otherwise there is no explanation why a company would just out of the blues start offering free calling. Also the additional benefit with Google voice that Skype doesn’t offer is the free international SMS and first minute of voice call free to 25 countries including India.
