On Monday we announced the availability of Windows Live Messenger. I highly recommend you go ahead and download it straight away from here but if you want a quick summary of what it includes then here is a list
- Call both PCs and phones from within Windows Live Messenger, linked into Verizon service
- Start webcam sessions in seconds
- Create sharing folders making it easier to share photos and other content with friends
- Integration into Windows Live Contacts, when your contacts change their details they will automatically be updated in Windows Live Messenger
- View your Windows Live Alerts with Windows Live Messenger, know when your football team score a goal or your stock goes up another £1
- Windows Live Messenger will integrate with the upcoming Windows Live Messenger enabled phones from Uniden America, Philips and Motorola (as mentioned in this blog before)
- Coming soon – talk with other people on Yahoo Messenger … more to come later!
It also worth noting this is one of the first Windows Live branded services to come out of beta … quite a significant step and probably the first of many.
