A free Google fax number will allow you to receive and send fax from your Gmail account. Email fax services gladly give you a free online fax number, there are no maintenance fees and you will never be charged a penny for your free fax number!
The most reliable, secure and affordable Google fax service can be obtained by integrating your online fax service with your Gmail account and doing this is very easy. You don’t have to worry about complicated set ups or configurations.
How to Get a Free Google Fax Number
The first thing you will need is to sign up with an internet fax service that will allow you to fax via email, more importantly fax from Google.
You can sign up with these services or try them out free for 30 days. You will be able to test out the integration of these services with your Gmail account. When you sign up you will be able to pick your free fax number (some providers offer a local or toll-free fax number). While this fax number is based online, you can receive and send faxes to anyone in the world.
How to Send a Fax From Gmail
Once you sign up you can easily begin faxing from your Gmail account by simply creating a new email and instead of placing an email in the “To” field, you will be placing the fax number followed by the providers server (this will be supplied to you after you sign up).
For example if I sign up with RingCentral I would enter the fax number followed by @rcfax.com, so it would be email@example.com.

No set ups and no configurations. You can also fax from your mobile phone, many services offer cell phone fax apps for smart phones such as the iPhone, Blackberry or Android. The best app is by RingCentral but you can also fax from your cell phone by accessing your email from the browser and faxing from there.
