Freeserve has announced plans to enter the burgeoning instant messaging industry, after signing a deal with US start-up Tribal Voice to distribute a customised version of its PowWow product.
Dubbed Freeserve Communicator, the software will be made available for free to all of the ISP's account holders by the end of the year.
Despite the recent well publicised spat between AOL and Microsoft over establishing interoperability between their rival instant messaging systems, Freeserve claims Communicator will be compatible with both products.
Tribal Voice was founded in 1994 by anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee and supplies corporate messaging systems to companies including AT&T.
