Windows Live Messenger is here!


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.
