The new “Click-to-Call” feature of VoiceGlo’s GloPhone VoIP browser-based phone service allows users to place a call to any published US or Canadian phone number listed on any website with a single mouseclick.
VoiceGlo, a subsidiary of The Globe.com (OTCBB:TGLO), announced an enhancement of itsGloPhone and GloConnect Web and PC-based telephony applications that converts a telephone number on a Web page into an active link that can be dialed directly from the user’s PC with a single mouseclick.
This enhancement is a continuation of VoiceGlo’s endeavor to provide instant global communications from a PC using voice and text. Like its underlying services, Click-to-Talk works over either a broadband or a dial-up Internet connection.
The company said that soon Click-To-Call to international destinations will be added. However, users can still manually call international numbers using their GloPhone dialpad and then save the number into their directory.
All calls between GloPhone and GloConnect users are free worldwide, and calls to any PSTN phone number worldwide can be made for less than half the cost of traditional long distance or international calls.

IM plug-in allows users to message, call, or voice message across all instant message platforms.
VoiceGlo, a subsidiary of The Globe.com (OTCBB:TGLO), announced this week the availability for beta testing of its new GloConnect product, which allows users to interoperate between all the major instant messaging clients.
GloConnect uses an overlay technology to unite all instant message services, including AOL, MSN, Yahoo and ICQ, allowing users to text message, voice message and phone each other for free no matter which – or how many different – platforms are involved.
Adding a phone (or microphone and speakers) to the IM client enables making and receiving calls to everyone on all their buddy lists, irrespective of IM service. GloConnect users do not have to log in to each of the networks or abandon their preferred IM interface.
GloConnect launched in beta version on Tuesday, and it is available for download at http://www.gloconnect.com. The company invites downloads and user feedback to help it finalize the product. Feedback on the beta version will be accepted until January 5, 2005.
GloConnect also incorporates VoiceGlo’s Web- and PC-based GloPhone worldwide VoIP phone service. In addition, anyone who downloads GloConnect is entitled to free peer-to-peer or IM-to-IM calling among all GloConnect or GloPhone users.
VoiceGlo is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and other products include GloPBX, a next-generation wireless communications system that turns wireless routers into virtual PBX systems.
