The Next Skype

The next version of Skype will enable people to post a link on a blog or Web site that will take people to a public chat room when clicked on, he said during a question-and-answer session during dinner.

The live chats would be "Skypecasts," which Zennstrom described as public conversations or audio conferences that people can moderate.

He would not provide a timeline for the features except to say it would be "soon."

Meanwhile, Skype has had conversations with many social networking sites about offering services that would allow users to "share content with each other in a conversation," he said.

This information comes Zdnet and it is interesting to see what Skype is going to bring to us in the future. The Web 2.0 congress 2006 is providing some interesting news. Some of the "senior" Web 2.0 companies are already telling what this next generation web is going to provide us.
