Windows Live Messenger Version 2009

Windows Live Messenger Beta (Old)

Windows Live Messenger Beta (Old)

I remember it was January 2007 when I had installed Windows Live Messenger Beta version. It was totally different in terms of look and features than what was called MSN messenger.

Windows has released the new version of messenger called Version 2009/14.0: It is once again completely different from the previous one. When it comes to customizable interface no one can beat Windows. Here are some of the interesting new features that messenger offers:

There is a whole new set of display photos to choose from.

Besides color schemes, a new feature called “scene” has been introduced. You can select from 23 available scenes or upload any photo of your choice from your computer that would be displayed on top of messenger (Something like skin).

Version 2009

You can further customize the layout of the messenger and add or remove groups, favorites, “What’s new list”, that shows display photo updates of your contacts etc.

The chat window has also been changed. You can hide the participants display photos that are now displayed on the left side, if you want. You can drag up and down the message tray (where message is typed).

And of course the regular features such as file sharing, voice and video chat are also there.

If you ask me, I liked it immensely πŸ™‚

    I was amongst MSN’s fans for quite sometime & still have most. no. of contacts on MSN. Lately, I have been liking google products more, due to being simple yet innovative.
    Microsoft is trying hard to compete. Windows 7 BETA has just been released. It is expected do well due to more modest hardware requirements as compared to earlier versions.

    New messengers (MSN/YAHOO) are really cool to use at home. These suit well with Vista. When every thing is glamorized new MSN goes well with facebook, blogs, games and Vista.

    There is some diverse opinion about the Windows Live. I liked it nonetheless and though I also like google but I have experienced some problems with gtalk while chatting. There is a room for further improvement.

    I’d still prefer WLM over the other messengers πŸ˜€
