MICROSOFT Malaysia has launched the new Skype for Business, saying the communications and collaboration tool will help businesses reinvent the way people communicate in the modern workplace. Skype for Business features include instant messaging, voice, video calls, online meetings and even presence – knowing when your contact is available to chat or not, the company said in a statement.
Right in the thick of chat app madness, Japan’s Line messenger has announced it will roll out a new feature to further boost its already-rich user experience. Engadget reports that the company will soon introduce a voice call service that lets users reach out to landline and cellphone users through the app. Set to be launched in the US, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Thailand and the Philippines (Taiwan will have to wait), the feature will be priced at JPY 6.5 (about USD $0.06) for a 30-day plan; or alternatively, at JPY 14 (about USD $0.13) per minute to cellphones and JPY 3 (about $0.03) to landlines if users opt for a pay-as-you-go plan.
