Currently, the calling feature only works in the U.S for businesses in the U.S. And the click-to-call phone numbers appear on mobile devices with full internet browsers.
It must be noted that Microsoft Windows live offer this service as well for those who use that search engine, and there are Click-to-Call plugins for Internet Explorer.
In addition, if you are running ads on Google AdWords-there are several ways to show click-to-call phone numbers on text ads that are shown to users with high-end mobile devices featuring full Internet browsers.
You can also show a unique, clickable phone number to customers nearest a business location, and a different number to all other users.
Whether you are looking for a business or listing your business- Click-to-Call is making it much easier to be in touch.
