instead, youll see a 'Call' button..

but when you click on the 'Call' button (on a user that doesnt use Google Talk)
youll get this message:
<< You cannot call because ~the users name~ is using chat in Gmail or another chat program other than Google Talk. >>

anyone know why Google removed the VoiceMail button?

the button also appears when a user who uses Gmail Talk. but when i hit the button it says the following:
<< You cannot send files because ~the users name~ is using chat in Gmail or is using another chat program. >>

Google has changed its location..

maybe Google is "promoting" the 'Call' button, cause we will able to call to Gmail Talk users?! hmm might be... (but im not counting on it)

"Call" when the user has a mic and is online.

"Voicemail" when the user is offline.

i called my uncle using Google Talk.. but i was the only one who could talk.. he was at work at the time, so he didnt have a mic, but he did have speakers..so he could hear me

<< "Voicemail" when the user is offline. >>
