Sending SMS messages with Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger.

A new feature we have got on our beloved GTalk2VoIP gateway. It is now possible for any Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger users to send SMS messages worldwide. The service is paid and works same way as calls to PSTN: messages are routed to cheapest carrier from those available/registered in our system. And of course it is possible for a user to choose the route. Details on how to send SMSes are here:

Unfortunately, at present we have the only carrier and the rate is not very good (aprox. $0.12). So, if you are an SMS service provider, and is interested in getting SMS traffic from Google Talk and MSN Messenger users, please contact us:

Anyway, I hope most users will find this service useful.

Add MSN contacts to Google Talk roster!

A new minor feature for Google Talk users: it's possible now to add MSN contacts to list of friends and make voice calls to them by pushing CALL button. To do so, just add your MSN contacts like:

Text messages sent to such contacts won't reach MSN Messegner users, though we are working on this small feature. Sort of an MSN Transport for Jabber is going to be available soon.

MSN Messenger support has been fixed!

MSN Messenger users can continue register and use all the services as it was previously announced, the roster limitation problem has been overcome. Please note, that all MSN Messenger users are now spread among several service bots named till The name of the service bot will be assigned to new MSN users on random basis during the registration.

There're some other good news:

1. An ENUM ( support has been added. Now, when users are trying to call to phone numbers which are registered on and have SIP aliases assigned, the first attemt to route such calls is made to SIP directly, thus making the call 100% free on success. If ENUM fails, a normal calling procedure is used.

2. We have moved the service to a new location (M9 Backbone) which we believe will increase service availability.

3. Lots of bugs have been fix which affected service stability.

Our team is currently busy working on J2ME edition of Google Talk like application with voice capabilities. Release is planned on late October. Keep tracking our news!

Kind regards,
