Google have launched a new service called Google SMS Channels. It is only available in India.

With it, you can create SMS groups to communicate with your friends, family, and co-workers.

Google SMS Channels are free both for content publishers as well as mobile phone users who subscribe to text updates via SMS.

It seems they have only released it in India because Indian Telcos have made SMS free.

This seems like an interesting development. It raises two questions in my mind. What does it mean for services like Twitter and how long will it be before other Telcos make SMS a free service.
