    Netizens in Delhi have given a thumbs up to the news. "Wow! We can actually hear voices and talk? It would be great chatting while playing Scrabble or Solitaire," said ad-man Arnab Chatterjee.

    For most of the girls, it's a great tool to filter their blind dates. "Hearing a guy's voice before going on a blind-date would be a great help," said Sheena, a college-goer.

    However, some are of the opinion that it will further encroach upon people's privacy. Says Ronit Bose, "Soon, we will have irritating voice ads popping up every now and then."
