New Skype beta has Call Forwarding

You read that correctly: version 1.4.0.47 of Skype forwards calls to a number of your choosing when you are not on-line.



Between EVDO and my WiFi network, I generally am on-line a majority of the day. It's nice to see that I can still catch Skype calls when I'm off-line too. Forwarded calls are billed at normal SkypeOut rates.

Why oh why didn't I originally enable comments on this post? Duh! Sorry about that. Issue fixed.

Josh Bancroft asked me if this was a server side or client side function. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking it HAS to be server side, but I did test it and confirmed that it is. You don't need to have a PC on with Skype for the the forwarding to work.

Makes sense, since if you did have a PC with Skype running, the PC would ring! ;)
