Skype Toolbars for Outlook and IE are released
If you have been a beta user of the Skype toolbars then you will know just how useful they are.
If not, imaging you are hungry, you use your PC to go to your favourite online pizza company to browse the menu, so why shouldn’t you be able to make a SkypeOut call directly from the web page and order your pizza? The toolbars let you do exactly that.
]]>The IE toolbar will automatically scan though a web page looking for numbers that could be phone numbers, when it finds one it lets you know by highlighting the number.
Hovering over the highlighted area will produce a pop up window that enables you to place a call directly from Skype.
The outlook toolbar integrates into Outlook and lets you call your Outlook contacts without having to copy and paste numbers into the Skype client.
Both the toolbars are free and can be download from http://www.skype.com/products/skypetoolbars/
If you’re looking to learn a little more about the toolbar functionality before you install, watch some demos, or maybe learn a little about how they were developed then take a look over in the Learning Zone to see our latest video interview with our very own Mr Toolbar – Peter Kalmström.
