Skype Set to Infiltrate a Host of Devices with New SDK

by VoipPlanet.com Staff

As of the recently released SDK, the Skype client can be used with no visible UI, making it easy to embed.

"The top dog in Internet telephony is set to expand its reach with the release of new development software. SkypeKit is aimed at allowing software writers to integrate the Net phone service into a variety of consumer electronics devices and computer software programs," writes TechNewsWorld's John P. Mello Jr.

"While Skype has had an open source application interface available to developers for some time, [Skype's General Manager for Platform Business Jonathan Christensen] explained, that API needed Skype's desktop software to function. For years now, he continued, developers have been looking for a solution that works without the desktop app," Mello writes.
