Here, is how to make voice calls between GTalk and Yahoo Messenger – from Gtalk or Yahoo Messenger using the Gtalk2VoIP service. Both services can also voice chat with MSN (Windows Live) users.
If you use Yahoo Messenger :
1. Start your Yahoo Messenger – Add a new friend – email@example.com
2. You should see a “friend” on your list. This is a bot. On the other side, is an automated system.
3. To call another Yahoo or Gtalk user , send the following message to your new bot friend :
CALL firstname.lastname@example.org to call Google Talk user email@example.com, or
CALL firstname.lastname@example.org to call MSN/Live Messenger user email@example.com
CALL firstname.lastname@example.org to call Yahoo Messenger user email@example.com
4. You should get a phone call yourself. Recieve it and listen to the rings, as you are connected to another Gtalk or MSN or Yahoo user.
Type HELP to the bot for more detailed help and functions.
For Gtalk users, the procedure is identical except you have to add/invite “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your list.
