Our friends on the Yahoo! Messenger team dropped us a note alerting us to their newly released Yahoo! Messenger 3 Beta 3 for the Mac. What's the big news with this beta? As you might recall previous betas made Messenger a Universal Binary and added tabbed chats. New in this beta: voice calling.
That's right, you can now do the following with Yahoo! Messenger, just like our Windows running comrades:
- Make free computer to computer calls
- Sign up for a Phone Out account which will allow you to call regular phones with Yahoo! Messenger
- Send free text messages to cell phones (though the receiver might get charged for the text)
- Receive calls from phones on your Mac if you have a Phone In account (these accounts aren't free)
