Windows Live Messenger is Microsoft’s next-generation MSN Messenger. It has the same features as MSN Messenger (contact list, emoticons, and instant access to your friends via text, voice, and video) — plus new ways to connect and share photos and documents effortlessly.
- YAHOO! – With Windows Live Messenger, you can now connect with your Yahoo! friends.
- PC-to-PC Calling – Have a high-quality voice conversation using PC-to-PC Calling.
- Better Video Conversations – New Messenger gives better: live, full-screen (640×480) video.
- Sharing Folders – Drag a file onto a contact’s name creating a Sharing Folder. Now you and your contact can get to all the files in the folder any time, even if one of you is offline.
- Text Message Phones – See a little mobile icon next to a friend’s name? Just right click to send a text message.
- 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.
