USB Speakerphone to use with Y! Messenger
I’d wanted to switch away from using the phone to have someone dial in for my weekly staff meeting from the UK and use Messenger instead. But that would have been difficult as there were 5 other people in the room here.
Gerald See then found this device, the mVox that we hooked up to a laptop and use with Y! Messenger.
The sound quality was pretty good and microphone was great also. The only problem was that the microphone was a little directional so it was not great at picking up people behind it. However if you placed it at the end of the conference table and pointed it down the table it worked great.
It’s also not that expensive, $40, a small investment to start using Y! Messenger to save on international phone calls.
Now all we need is Y! Messenger to support VOIP conference calls so that we can throw those old conference rooms phones away 🙂
