InterFAX Adds Faxing From Google Docs

Google Docs users can now fax documents from within their Google Docs accounts with this inexpensive fax service.

As much as it baffles me that fax machines still exist in the 21st century, I still have a handful of business contacts who rely on--nay, stubbornly insist on--fax machines for important business communications. While this has become rare in the tech world, where sentient beings have long since abandoned faxes for PDFs and email, many independent contractors in a variety of fields still force their clients to fax important documents.

If you're a Google Docs user still dealing with faxes on an occasional basis, InterFAX's new support for faxing from Google Docs is a very interesting solution that's incredibly easy to use. InterFAX customers on all service plans can enable faxing from Google Docs in their InterFAX Settings menu. Once the feature is enabled, you just drag the Fax This bookmarklet to your browser's bookmarks bar.

Faxing from within Google Docs is as easy as opening a document and then clicking the Fax This bookmarklet. It works on your own Google Docs files, as well as any file attachments you view from within Gmail.

InterFAX service starts at $10 for a basic prepaid sending package, which works out to 11 cents a page for U.S. domestic faxing and varies by country. Receiving plans start at $9.50 per month for a standard number and $12.95 per month for a toll-free 866 number.
