    January 6, 2005

Skype, the company behind the flourishing internet telephony network, has begun to experiment with a voicemail service …

… hoping to introduce new paid offerings to capitalize on its success, eWeek reports.

The company confirmed on Tuesday that it was testing voicemail, which a spokeswoman said was scheduled to be rolled out in the first half of the year. She declined to provide further details.

“We are testing voicemail as you know. But I can’t say anymore than that. We don’t have launch date-should be sometime this spring. It’s just in development phase,” spokeswoman Kat James said in a Skype messaging chat.
