GTalk2VoIP gateway now supports OSCAR protocol and its voip extentions. It means that users of instant messengers like AIM, ICQ and iChat can now use our service to make voice calls to other IM networks as well as to landline/mobile phone numbers and SIP phones. In general, all our voice services
previously available for Google Talk, MSN and Yahoo are now presented to AIM, ICQ and iChat users.
