Hi All,wondering if any of the BC Members have this on their PC?
Free PC to PC Talk anywhere in the world.
Would like to try. I would appreciate any feedback first.

Or is there a better free alternative, that can be recommended?

Tried it, simple and nice. I still prefer Skype. Better sound quality, and everybody already has it.

Google talk is simple instant messaging program.

MSN and Yahoo have had free pc to pc calls for years so nothing new.

Skype is the best. I cant use it though because of my dial up connection.
I mean I can listen but if I try and talk it gets noisy.

Google talk does have VoIP.

I installed SKYPE a couple of weeks ago as my daughter at the other end of the country recommended it, but have been reinstalling Windows so haven't had a chance to check it out properly yet. Ordered a Skype phone yesterday so that will be here in a couple of days. Should be interesting.

The g/f installed Google, Yahoo, MySpace and another one on my desktop PC. Why not just use a universal Chat client. I like the idea of Skype but as I do little to no chatting except when here I dont really have a use for it

I prefer Google Talk. Less lag than Skype. Can't do actual telephone calls but, heh, it's free, less lag than Skype and works great with my gmail and contact list. :thumbsup:
