Just when you thought you had it all figured out, a voice chat app pops up like a neon sign to inform you that you have a message. You’re not sure what it is, what it means, how to respond, or when to reply. I suppose you could ignore the app or if you’re like me, you could wait it out. Either way, it’s an interruption that has me looking for a solution.
I hate to give a game a bad review, but I have to say that the best way to deal with it is to ignore it. I can’t do that with a keyboard.
Voice chat is the new texting. Even if youve had your hands on the latest iPhones, the lack of direct integration with the game (which I think is good) is a big reason why I have been finding it difficult to play. As a result, I am finding myself spending more time on Skype, Google Talk, and Facetime. Its not that I cant talk to people, its just that the quality of conversation is not as good as it is with voice.

I think the good thing about voice chat is that its a small interface. I can have a conversation with friends and coworkers, or even with the computer I am using, and it still doesn’t take up too much of my time. It’s a small and intimate way to share what you’re working on with the world.
I think it is nice to have a way to share what you are up to with the world. However I think it is unfortunate that voice chat is still so very limited. The people I do have it with (my girlfriend and I) spend about an hour a day speaking to each other, and the voice chat is just as limited as it was when I first got it. If Skype were to be truly integrated it would be more like Skype on steroids.
I think that voice chat is a great idea, but I think it is way too limited to be integrated into Skype. Instead Skype on steroids would be Skype with a whole lot more features. These features could include things like real time text chat, instant messaging, voice and video conferencing, photo sharing, and more.
Skype would probably be a lot better off if you could speak to your friends in Skype, but it would be hard to integrate into Skype at this point.
Skype with the ability to “talk to the people you love” will be a major selling point for the Windows version. It is already part of the Mac version, but it is missing from the Windows version. It would be great if Windows Skype would integrate the “people you love” feature, but I think that would make the Windows version much more expensive.
Skype has a great solution for this problem: Just use Skype for Mac and Windows. It will be easy and powerful to communicate with your friends over Skype, without having to use Skype apps or computers.
