What Can You Say In One Minute?

Some of you might say that one minut is too small, but after seeing this you’ll believe that one minute is very big for an emergency call. Lets see what you can say with one minute.

  • Say “Happy Holidays” in twenty-five different languages
  • Call that great-aunt you can only handle 55 seconds at a time
  • Get the surf report in Gold Coast, Australia direct from a local
  • Say “I love you” 42 times
  • Actually leave that voicemail instead of hanging up to avoid being charged
  • Call local restaurants, hotels, and attractions when traveling internationally
  • Mom, dad, can you send some money?
  • Say “ 25 – 30 times” [lols]

What are you waiting for? Grab this opportunity.


  1. Hi Larry

    Google Hangout is so cool and very user friendly. One of the things I like about Google is the fact that they are very innovative. I believe giving out a minute call for its users is cool. Thanks for sharing this info

  2. Hi Ikechi,

    Sure Google is very innovative, and have occupied almost every place in the internet, (social networe, search engine, online store) infact name it.

    This is a BIG benefit to all users in those countries.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hi Larry that’s really cool. It is a very good incentive for Google’s customers and to be giving back to them in this way. Love the list of things one can say in 1 minute, including saying 25-30 times. That’s awesome!

    On a more serious not though, if all one can say is I love you within that time and mean it, that person said a lot and can change someone’s life and make all the difference in the world.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed weekend.

  4. Hi Ma’am Yvonne,
