Skype, the Microsoft owned famous VOIP service provider, has announced two new offers for the Indian customers.
According to a report, Skype now will offer real-time translation service through its mobile app and web based client. As a part of this service, it has already launched a Spanish-English test program.
The program will allow communicating in two different languages and the service will translate the call in real-time.
Skype launched its first trial with an exchange between school children in Mexico and Washington DC. The service is based on machine learning so the more it is used the better it will become as it picks up new words, syntaxes and accents.
According to another report, Skype is offering users free calls to the US and Canada. Launched exclusively for the Indian customers, this offer will allow users to call any landline or cellphone number across the two countries.
Skype will soon start advertising its new service. To avail the offer, user needs to login with their user name and password and dial a number like placing any traditional call.
