    SkypeKit beta SDK adds Skype to any application or device -- Engadget

    Could someone build something?

    Get ready for the second major wave of video chatting -- not only is Apple about to bring video calling to the masses with the iPhone 4, but Skype today announced the SkypeKit beta SDK, which devs can use the SDK to interface their apps and devices directly with Skype's service starting tomorrow. That means there's no need to run the Skype desktop app -- it'll just be integrated into whatever you're running, like the recent Panasonic VIERA connected TVs with Skype integration. Once they've passed a UI certification, devices and apps will be billed as "plugged into Skype," but don't expect to see anything happen too quickly: the SDK is Linux-only at the moment, with Windows and Mac desktop versions forthcoming, and Skype will be testing apps and devices before they go live.

    Probably - but it still won't be much use without an API to access the Microphone.

    I would highly enjoy just access to Skype Chat.

    I read how to do this via the web somewhere in here:

    navigate to the following on your Pre, save page in launcher:

    h t t p : / / s4palm.com/index_webos.jsp
    (remove spaces)

    Hope that helps.

    I can get Skype on imo.im. I want a native app that can run mainly chat, but is capable of maybe VoIP calls over WiFi.

    Probably not for a long time to be truthful. Even if one was made, it would be pretty basic and lackluster in UI design.

    When I read the news of the Skykit, I was like... "Oh great, this isn't going on WebOS." I know it sounds pessimistic, but thats just how I feel about apps on WebOS. Everything, but apps on WebOS is there.


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    Is this in the works? We all really need it. They have it for other platforms..not sure why we don't have it...Any plans for it in the near future?

    Been discussed too many times...hit up search and you'll find a reoccuring reply of no microphone APIs from Palm. Wait for the fall when these and other APIs will be released.

    Any mic APIs, but I want a native Skype app, even if it only has Chat.

    I agree with the comments about just being happy with text chatting. I've tried other options like imo and IM+ but neither work for group chats. It splits them into individual IMs that are confusing.

    If the chat API is available then it is very possible that Skype chat can be easily added to WebOS with the current OS.

    thanks jdod that does work. Now I wonder if someone could get the server address so that someone can make a skype chat patch like there is for facebook. http://m.forums.precentral.net/palm-...hat-patch.html How does one find the ip address that skype uses for chat?
