    Anyone know if there is a way to have the google chat SMS feature on a smart phone? My Galaxy S3 has the "google talk" feature and there is no option to send an SMS like there is when I access gmail from my computer. Is there an app or some kind of trick I can use to get the same SMS capabilities on my smart phone as well? I was able to use google chat SMS to avoid paying for international texting. I was hoping I could continue this strategy with my smart phone. Unfortunately, I can't find the same feature on mobile.

    Please refer to the attachment to get a clear idea of what I mean. Notice how when you click on a contact in gmail and open up a chat tab, there is a dropdown menu and you can select "send text (SMS)"?
    That feature is not present on mobile. Can I get that feature somehow?

    I think if you use Google Voice it sends as an SMS. I mostly just use it for the visual voice mail though.

    Yep, I have tried google voice. Unfortunately, it does not support international texting. It only supports within the US I believe.
