Skype Connector Added to Imo.im

imo.im web based instant messaging

A few weeks ago, they introduced MySpace IM and now they added a connector to Skype!

As a further bonus, they are trying out experimental support for voice calls to your Skype contacts. Since call quality is not yet perfect, do not yet allow calls to phone numbers or “SkypeOut” buddies. You can, however, call any of your Skype friends who may not yet be on imo.im. If you want to try out a call, click on the “Skype Test Call” buddy, and select “Start Call” in the conversation window, which now appears next to the webcam function. A call window should pop up. Make sure that you allow imo.im to access your microphone, or your voice will not be heard.

Skype and MySpace connectors are still in their early stages, so you may encounter with problems.

    Have you tried the functionality yourself? I have tried and it really failed on a number of calls so it’s definitely an honest alpha. But I like their approach to combining all the major IM clients plus chats in social networks on one service.
