Hullo Goes Offline

As of November 20th, the Hullo beta is over.  According to the email they sent yesterday, a new beta, and new Voice 2.0 applications will be coming online in the next few weeks.  Send mail to beta@hullo.com to participate!

Dear hullo subscriber,

We want to thank you for taking part in the beta of hullo.  The response has been great and based on feedback from our users there are going to be changes made to the hullo service to deliver more new Voice 2.0 applications. If there is anything you would like to ensure we include in our plans, please send an email to info@hullo.com.

As a result, hullo will be unavailable effective Monday, November 20th. We will be starting a new beta in the next few weeks. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to beta@hullo.com (you can also include your feedback in this email).

The Hullo Team

It will be interesting to see what they come up with. In recent weeks, Skype 3.0 beta has duplicated one of Hullo’s best features, which is the ability to add participants to conference calls mid-call.  Truly ad-hoc, collaborative conference calls are now possible with either product, although Skype can’t duplicate the quality of Hullo’s call due to the fact that Hullo is using a media server in the network to do the conferencing, while Skype mixes the call on the user’s PC.

    I have heard persistent rumors to the effect that Hullo is loosing developers something fierce. It seems that a lot of them are abandoning ship.

    Thanks for the update. I was wondering what happened as I used the beta, but was abruptly cut-off the other day…….. somehow having missed the email. Having said that I found Hullo to be fantastic. One of the best features is to be able to talk using your regular telephone rather than a computer microphone. I will be anxious to try their new beta when it is available.
