MessageBay Announces Mac Recording Plug-in, Windows Compatible.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 23, 1999

Mac and Windows users are finally talking to one another, or at least they're sending each other voice messages on the web, thanks to MessageBay's latest Plug-in for the Mac. Now, when Mac users visit any website voice-enabled by MessageBay, they can auto-install the free plugin and instantly record and send voice messages to Windows users without large file attachments or file format incompatibilities. Windows users can also send voice messages to Mac users.

Some online services allow Mac and Windows users only to play voice messages, but the new MessageBay Mac plug-in is the first to enable Mac users to Record and send to both Mac or Windows users just as easily, and directly from any web page.

"The compatibility between Mac and Windows users tells only part of the story," says MessageBay CEO Jon Louis, "Webmasters are just beginning to realize that they can now add two-way voice messaging to so many of their site's free services. Users can send voicemail, create a voice greeting, or post voice to a message board in real time. We make it easy to add voice to all kinds of stuff."

The plug-in is small, and the one-time installation takes less than 30 seconds in most cases. Since the voice message is stored on the server, Windows and Mac users can send a voice message to an unlimited number of users while creating only single copy of the file which is sent as link, so users won't reach their storage limits on Hotmail or Yahoo anytime soon.
