Internet telephony provider Skype plans to offer bloggers and others the ability to hold audio chats in the next version of Net telephone product, co-founder Niklas Zennstrom said Tuesday night at the Web 2.0 Summit here.

The next version of Skype will enable people to post a link on a blog or Web site that will take people to a public chat room when clicked on, he said during a question-and-answer session during dinner.

The live chats would be "Skypecasts," which Zennstrom described as public conversations or audio conferences that people can moderate. He would not provide a timeline for the features except to say it would be "soon."

That's interesting - I think bloggers would do more audio stuff if it weren't for the somewhat cumbersome nature of traditional podcasting.

Skypecasts sound interesting, but more of a community-site thing as opposed to blogs (but obviously it depends on the nature of the blog). Bloggers that want to create podcasts easily can use a service like Evoca.

Ah bugger! I've been deliberately avoiding Skype because of its proprietary system but this might be the "killer-feature" that forces my hand.
