Yahoo! Messenger features upgraded VoIP services

VoIP is very hot right now and Yahoo! doesn’t want Skype to have all the fun. In fact, they are a bit frustrated that Skype is getting all the attention when they have been offering PC to PC calls for more than 5 years. In a bid to grab back some attention back, Yahoo! is updating their Messenger service to allow users to make cheaper VoIP calls than they can using Skype.

The new service will allow PC to phone calls for 1 cent per minute in the U.S. and 1.9 cents per minute to 30 other countries. You can also choose a number for incoming calls in the U.S., U.K. and France for $2.99 per month or $29.90 per year.

Yahoo! is getting aggressive in improving and promoting their offerings in the face of huge competition. The beta version of Skype 2.0 includes video calling and Sony has unveiled IVE, their free video and voice service. More innovation in the months to come is a sure thing and that is very good for all of us.
