Wavigo – Communication the Way It Should Be

(Migrated weblog post from LSR)

Goodness ! It looks like the competition just keeps coming up with some really good tools as we go along and so far there doesn’t seem to be a limit nor any indication as to when it is going to stop. The latest tool that will be rocking the place as far as real-time collaboration is going to be Wavigo. This relatively new tool will actually allow you to do a whole bunch of really cool things. To start with it would allow you to keep track with all your different buddies on most of the different IM protocols available out there: MSN, Yahoo!, ICQ, AOL, pretty much like Trillian does already, although it is still missing the Jabber, the I.R.C. or the Sametime plugins. However, the key advantage from Wavigo in this particular case is the interface with Skype which means you can talk to your Skype buddies through Wavigo. For the first time there is a connection between traditional IM clients and VoIP clients. Really nice !

But that is not all of what Wavigo offers you. Apart from the IM and VoIP components it has got a whole bunch of other different options that will make your IM experience a lot more enjoyable. And if not take a look for yourself:

  • With this application you would be able to subscribe to RSS Newsfeeds (Indeed ! Way cool !).
  • Send SMS messages.
  • Set up conference calls between 2 to 4 parties.
  • Use the same functions as with Skype, so, that is, VoIP to dial out and to receive calls.
  • Also it has got a media player to play videos.
  • It has got as well a Voicemail service and the possibility of getting Quotes and Weather reports.
  • And, finally, it has got a search engine for different engines and another tab (Travel) that would allow you search for flight tickets from various International Airports (Way too good to be true, but it actually works !).

    These and many other features are already available from this Beta product, Wavigo, and although some of them may be a bit too shaky at the moment this is certainly one of those tools that I will be watching very closely to see how it evolves. For the time being I have already got installed in my machine and it surely is a nice break from Trillian Pro and, of course, freeware. So if you are looking for something different and a whole new IM experience Wavigo is worth while a try. You may never come back to anything else. We shall see. So far I am hanging in there.
