Gizmo Project 3 has been released for both the Mac and PC platforms. Having been a long time fan of Skype, the slightly lesser known Gizmo has been in my dock for the odd dabble. This new version 3 brings with it some very interesting new features.
The new Meta-voice capabilities of Gizmo Project 3.0 allow users to call four of the most popular Voice and IM networks. All your calls to Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live, Google Talk, and Gizmo Project users are free. This is a superb addition and will prove very popular. Another new feature is being able to customise your avatar by picking a personalized graphic. Your avatar is the picture used to represent yourself in Gizmo Project.
Gizmo Project 3 now supports file transfers via the Jabber protocol. This means you can exchange files with anyone using a jabber client! The new chat history (which has been around in other IM clients for a long time) allows you to save all your past IM conversations, plus you can now chat with several users at once.
This is a very worthy update and well worth checking out.
