The latest version of the Internet phone technology is designed to enable up to seven people to turn an online chat session into a confidential, real-time voice conversation, AT&T said. It is a component of AT&T's Inter@ctive Communications that is featured on the Lycos Web site, as part of a June alliance between the two companies.
AT&T collaborated with software firm eShare Technologies in enhancing the Chat 'N Talk program.
"This next generation of AT&T Chat N' Talk helps define the word 'community' when speaking about how the Net is bringing people together," said Robert J. Davis, president & CEO of Lycos Inc. "Through a combination of AT&T's advanced communications and e-Share's hosting technology, Lycos chat group participants can come together in an anonymous vocal forum."
According to the firms, system requirements are a 486 or higher PC, running Windows 95 with at least 16 megabytes of RAM; Internet Explorer 3.02 or above, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or above; and one phone line separate from an Internet connection.
