Skype 3.0 is in beta 3, and with that it adds functionality that is bound to hit the blogosphere. You’€™ll be able to click to call, via a link on your website. A great way to spread the Skype brand, no doubt. Already you’€™ll find most prominent bloggers having a Skype account for you to bother, posted on their blogs, so this is a natural step.
Other news include Skypecast to handle up to 100 users in a huge, moderated conference call. A IRC like text chat is apparently also added.
Ars Technica has more. I’€™ll download it when it’€™s officially released since I use Skype for, well, everything phone-like. (Yeah, almost wrote ‘€œphony’€? there, sorry.)
