Windows Live™ Messenger beta

See. Hear. Share. Instantly.

What it is

Windows Live Messenger will be the next-generation MSN Messenger. It will have everything you already love about Messenger—your contact list, emoticons, and instant access to your friends via text, voice, and video—plus new ways to connect and share documents with almost magical ease. As always, it will be free to download Messenger and use most of its features.

What you will be able to do with it

• Send all your familiar winks and emoticons, plus some cool new ones

• Have real-time text, video and voice conversations*

• Call your friends' mobile or land-line telephones by signing up for MCI Web Calling to make affordable domestic and international calls

• Easily share documents of all kinds with Sharing Folders

• Make free PC-to-PC calls with other Messenger users

*Both parties must have compatible Web cameras, speakers, and microphones.

System Requirements

• Multimedia PC

• Pentium 233 MHz process (500 MHz recommended)

• Microsoft Windows XP

• Minimum 128 MB of RAM (256 MB recommended)

• Up to 50 MB of hard disk space for installation, 15 MB to run the program.

• Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 SP1 or later must be installed on your computer, though it does not need to be your default.

• Minimum 800 x 600 screen resolution

for some odd reason, it sounds like msn messenger. all i see is a new way to share photos and documents..... if someone could enlighten me about this, it would be helpful.

Here is the blog! Keep tabs on it and you will see all the new features in WLM

honestly the only MAIN diff is the UI, and the contact list!

so u mean like a scam to make regular users who are not in the technology loop upgrade to this becuase they think its a completely new program?

hehe had to day it :P:whistle:

[edit]

after checking the blog, these new features will be completely useless to me becuase all i need is a list of online/offline, and webcam/audio/file transfer support.
