voice chat

An audioconferencing capability via the Internet. It enables two or more people to use the computer as a telephone conferencing system. Although "voice" and "chat" may seem redundant because both words mean to "speak," chatting in the computer field has traditionally meant an interactive communication via keyboard, and not voice. Thus "voice" is used to signify a verbal chat. See voice over IM.
