Microsoft Build Conference is going to start on Wednesday, June 26th. Microsoft is set to launch Windows 8.1 public preview along with Internet Explorer 11 public version for its new operating system. Microsoft is hoping big for its new Windows version. Many things were said officially and unofficially about the upcoming OS. According to Neowin, Microsoft can add a brand new calling feature in IE11 that will run on Windows 8.1.
This "Click to Call" feature could make it very easy for Windows 8.1 users to make live phone calls through IE11 using Skype like apps. Microsoft had already added the Skype facility for Outlook users. Now it is expected to be added in IE11 upcoming version. To call though this feature, user has to just click on highlighted links of phone numbers present on websites opened in IE11. After clicking, a list of dialing apps may appear that have already been specified in Default Program. This account set up will be specific to one user account and other accounts on same PC will not have access to that.
Now we will have to wait a day more to see that what Microsoft will actually announce on Wednesday at its Windows Build Developer Conference.
