As of today, Skype have launched a beta for their new SkypeIn service. Currently it’s possible to get numbers in four regions (France, Hong Kong/China, United Kingdom and United States), regardless of where you yourself live, that allow people to dial in to your Skype using “normal” telephone systems. For a year, the subscription costs 30â‚¬, 10â‚¬ for 3 months. A subscription for the Skype VoiceMail system, that’s also been in beta test for a while now, is included in that price.
To use the new features, you’ll need a newly released beta version of the Skype Client.
