Yahoo Messenger 7 for Mac
Yahoo today announced a new version of Yahoo Messenger for Mac that introduces a number of new audio and voice capabilities. Users can now place PC-to-PC calls, as well as Phone Out/In, with a full voice message and SMS service on the Mac. By creating a Phone In account, Yahoo will provide users with a telephone number that they can be reached at from a standard phone, starting at $2.50 per month, and is available in France, the UK and US.
Yahoo Messenger can also place international calls, similar to Skype, with rates starting at 1¢ per minute. The phone out services are currently available only for US residents.
