Orb Launches Voicemail for Skype
Orb Networks has introduced V4S, the a software for free Web voice messaging, enabling users to send voice messages to any email or Skype contact.

"Voice messaging fills the gap between real-time voice conversations and text-based messaging solutions," said Ian McCarthy, vice president of product marketing at Orb Networks, the creators of V4S. "Sometimes you just want to send someone a message in your own voice."

From any Web browser (or directly from the Skype interface), V4S users can create and send voice messages for free to friends and family. V4S voice messages can be played back from any device with a streaming audio player, including mobile phones and PDAs.

Thanks to email and SMS alerts, users of V4S get their friends' voice messages delivered to them right away, wherever they are.

V4S is the latest addition to the Orb platform, which gives users access from everywhere to their television, music, photos, and other digital content. "Orb continues to help consumers get the most out of their digital and broadband investments," said McCarthy.
