With Yahoo! Messenger’s PC-to-PC feature, you can place an Internet call from your PC to another Messenger user’s PC anywhere in the world, and at no cost. It’s all part of the package, so all you have to do is click a button and start talking. You’ll need a headset or a microphone and speakers to use this feature. To ensure that they are set up properly, read through the setup task in the Introducing Messenger’s Voice and Video Features tutorial.
Tip: You can’t place PC-to-PC calls to contacts outside the Yahoo! network, such as your Windows Live™ Messenger contacts and your Pingbox™ visitors.
Important: Emergency calling services, such as 000, are not available through PC-to-PC calling. Inform others who use this product that they must dial emergency numbers through traditional phone lines or mobiles.
Begin a PC-to-PC call in one of the following ways:
From your Messenger List: Click the person’s display image to open the contact card, then click the PC-to-PC call icon.
From your conversation window: If you’re already conversing with a friend, you can call her by clicking the Voice Call button at the top of the conversation window.
The call area opens.
If your contact answers your call, carry on a conversation just as if you’re both on the phone.
To mute your microphone or speaker, click the appropriate icon.
Your can end the call by clicking the End Call button.
Of course, you can also receive a PC-to-PC call.
