Skype 3 features moderated chats

Posted on Friday, Nov 10 2006 @ 15:05 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Skype released the first beta version of Skype 3.0. This new version will allow users to create their own moderated chatrooms.
As in previous update stages, Skype 3.0 has received a slightly redesigned and extended interface design and numerous new features that let people communicate in more ways than simple one-on-one chats and one-on-one voice calling. Most significantly, public moderated voice chats are the main new feature in Skype 3.0.

Users can set up "Skypecasts," which have the feel of a live podcast in which you have the choice to listen or actively participate, within a few minutes through Skype's website. A new "live" tab within the Skype client enables users to search and join currently running Skypecasts, much like they would join a private chat. When leaving the Skypecast, users are presented with a participant list and the opportunity to contact these users.
