As the launch date of the next version of Windows Phone is getting closer day-by-day, new additions and improvements are also making their way through to the upcoming mobile OS. The upcoming Windows Phone 8 is also known as Windows Phone ‘Apollo’.
The recent news about this yet to be officially launched mobile operating system is that Microsoft is planning to allow carriers to integrate their own, or third-party communication services into the People Hub. This includes voice and messaging services, and will allow carrier VoIP to appear as a normal voice call. This will open up the doors for carriers to integrate things like GChat, AIM, etc. into the People Hub if they want. For instance, the technology would allow VoIP phone calls to be made directly from the dialer exactly as normal circuit-switched phone calls are made now.
Microsoft is likely to discuss the integration of Rich Communication Suite-enhanced (RCSe) services directly into Windows Phone 8 during an invitation-only event at Microsoft’s UK offices in Reading in the coming weeks.
