AOL playing catch-up with SkypeAOL said earlier this week they will open up their VoIP platform for 3rd party development. I guess Skype and it’s parent company eBay is making louder footsteps then AOL anticipated. AOL announced three tools which will become available for hardware and software developers.
- An API to develop “ringback” tones or personalized ring tones
- Another would allow hardware developers to create USB devices that work with the service like headsets, phones and speaker phones.
- The last API would allow for call management features to be used with AIM VoIP platform.
