Yahoo Messenger Adds VOIP

April 7th, 2006 · No Comments

Yahoo has recently added VOIP (Voice over IP) capabilities to it’s Instant Messenger client. Now you can carry on world wide PC to PC voice calls for free.

There are two interesting items to note from this announcement. 1) This brings VoIP further into the mainstream and thereby moving traditional pay per minute long distance closer to extinction. And 2) they are offering voice mail and call history, which proves that even in an online world, “voice only” service is not enough to compete; value added services are the key to any providers success.
