It's the next-generation MSN Messenger. Along with everything you already love about Messenger-your contact list, emoticons, and instant access to your friends-there are brilliant new ways to connect and share photos (and other stuff). As always, it's free to download Messenger and use most of its features. Windows Live Messenger has a fresh new look, but it's still got all the features you know and love.
NEW in 2011
- Facebook - chat to your Facebook friends directly from Messenger.
- Compact View - Messenger 2011 can be switched to 'compact view' to give you that traditional Messenger feel.
- Send Photos - The new Hotmail allows you to send more photos than ever before.
- Security - Hotmail offers new security safeguards to help protect your email account from hackers and fraud.
Windows Live Messenger Features:
Instantly connect to the people who matter the most-via text, voice, or video. Even if they're offline, you can leave a message or send a note.
Choose from a variety of status messages for any occasion. Use Windows Live Contacts to control your personal information-who sees it and what they see.
Share your personal files, photos, and videos of any size. Just drag and drop into a Shared Folder.
Connect with your friends on Yahoo!
With Windows Live Messenger, you can talk to your contacts on Yahoo! Just add their e-mail addresses (like all your other Messenger contacts) and you can see if they're online or offline and even share emoticons. You can send and receive messages while you appear to be offline. And if you really are offline, your contacts can still send you messages-you'll get them next time you log in.
Speak your mind: Have a high-quality voice conversation using PC-to-PC Calling. You and the person you call will need to have Messenger installed, and compatible microphones and speakers or a headset.
Even better video conversations
Those old science fiction movies with TV phones? That's what the new Messenger will give you, only better: live, full-screen.
Text message their phones
See a little mobile icon next to a friend's name? Just right click to send a text message.
Your two-way, super-powered address book
With Windows Live Contacts, whenever your contacts update their information, it will also be changed in your Messenger address book. Instantly. (Your Windows Live Hotmail address book will be updated, too.)
Windows Live Alerts
Headlines, sports scores, traffic, or just about anything else you want to keep up with-get pop-up notifications of things as they happen.
