Recently while browsing I came across amazing service by Google that enables channels/groups on SMS. It’s a free service that enables you to get premium content published by Google publishing partners, Google popular products (Google News, Blogger and Google Groups) and websites with RSS/Atom support for free. SMS Channels allows you to create your own channel(s) to publish content that other users can subscribe to. You can also create groups over SMS to communicate with your friends, family, and co-workers.
You can use the service by going to the Google SMS Channels site or via your mobile phone. On the web you can sign up using your Google account. You’ll need to input your phone number while signing up. We’ll send a verification code via SMS to your phone. You’ll need to input the verification code you received to complete the sign up process.
This service is currently available to users in India and requires an Indian mobile number, so webmaster can use this service for getting traffic from India.
Webmaster can send can opt for other Indian languages (Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam). The only caveat is that the mobile handset of the subscribers should support Unicode and ASCII characters.
By default, Google lab will send 10 messages each day. But user can increase this limit, by going to the ‘Settings’ link and entering their number for which you are comfortable with against ‘Maximum messages per day:’
