Rumor mill: iChat 4.0 to include Voicemail
The Unofficial Apple Weblog is confirming older reports from MacRumors that the upcoming version of iChat (to be bundled with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard) will include voicemail features. The MacRumors report from December of 2006 says that users will be allowed to create a video greeting to serve as an answering machine message of sorts. A couple screenshots have surfaced of this feature, with TUAW posting the most recent, reproduced below. Of course like all Apple related rumors you should take this with a grain of salt. Concocted screenshots and fake imagery have long been part of the Mac rumor mill, and although these look legitimate, we just won’t know until the release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, scheduled for later this Spring.
