Do you want to have a chat with your friends, schoolmates or families over the Internet in real time? Do you want to have a long-distance telephone call low expenses? There is a good news for us! With Windows Live Messenger, this IM and video phone software which was published by Microsoft Corp, we can take our dreams into realism.

Windows Live Messenger, previously known as MSN Messenger, was renamed as part of Microsoft move towards the Live online community. So far, the most popular IM app in the world had already gone through a bunch of updates, but this new name also meant important changes that would somehow start a new period in Messenger history. Windows Live Messenger is the next generation of MSN Messenger. It supports video chats, phone-to-phone, phone-to-PC calls and conventional text chats with full support for emoticons, font formatting and more. Windows Live Messenger integrates support for Yahoo!, enabling us to chat with our Yahoo! buddies from the same application. With Windows Live Messenger we can chat online instantly in real time with friends, family and colleagues. It is faster than e-mail, more discreet than a phone call.

The key features and functions of Windows Live Messenger include: Talk to our Yahoo! Friends. With Windows Live Messenger, we can now connect with our Yahoo! friends. Forget about using multiple accounts to talk to our friends. We can do it all directly from Windows Live Messenger. The world largest IM network has just gotten bigger-and better. PC-to-PC Calling. Speak our mind: Have a high-quality voice conversation using PC-to-PC Calling. Even better video conversations. Those old science fiction movies with TV phones? That is what the new Messenger will give us, only better: live, full-screen (640x480) video. Sharing Folders. Drag a file onto a contact name. We have just created a Sharing Folder. Now we and our contact can get to all the files in the folder any time, even if one of us is offline. Text message their phones. See a little mobile icon next to a friend name? Just right click to send a text message. Our two-way, super-powered address book. With Windows Live Contacts, whenever our contacts update their information, it will also be changed in our Messenger address book. Instantly. (Our Windows Live Mail address book will be updated, too.) Windows Live Alerts. Headlines, sports scores, traffic, or just about anything else we want to keep up with-get pop-up notifications of things as they happen.

The requirement of this IM and video phone software is very low, such as: Computer and processor: Multimedia PC Pentium 233 MHz process (500 MHz recommended). Operating system: Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Vista. Memory: Minimum 128 MB of RAM (256 MB recommended). Hard disk: Up to 50 MB of hard disk space for installation, 15 MB to run the program. Display: Minimum 800 x 600 screen resolution. Browser: Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 SP1 or later must be installed on our computer, though it does not need to be our default browser. Internet connection: Internet functionality requires dial-up or broadband Internet access (provided separately). Local or long-distance charges may apply.

Overall, Windows Live Messenger is a very nice, easy to use and full-functions IM and video phone system. The developer of this software wanted to ensure ease of use for the average home user with its simple, clean, great looking interface, but included features for even the most demanding, experienced users. It is an ideal solution for us to have a chat ro have a video phone.

It supports video chats, phone-to-phone, phone-to-PC calls and conventional text chats with full support for emoticons, font formatting and more. Windows Live Messenger integrates support for Yahoo!, enabling you to chat with your Yahoo! buddies from the same application. Other features include file sharing, SMS messaging, Live Contacts address book and more. This version offers many improvements over the old MSN Messenger, and the video chat produces high quality, full motion video, even in full-screen.

A completely new look and also new feature turn Windows Live Messenger into a real competitor for Yahoo! Messenger.
You can, of course, send an instant message, call a computer, call a phone number, send a mobile message or send an e-mail. You can edit your status display and start a video chat with your friends.
Customizable skins and new emoticons are only a few of the new features included in Windows Live Messenger. During the installation process, you are also prompted to install the Rhapsody Music Service which allows you to discover, play and share music from the Rhapsody catalog.

1. Pluses: You can create custom emoticons by selecting an image on your computer which will be automatically resized. Now, you can send messages to offline contacts so that they will receive them as soon as they log in, but this feature need to be improved.
2. Other exciting features of Microsoft Live Messenger are the Whiteboard, Remote Assistance and Application Sharing. These features, only available with Microsoft Live Messenger give chatters the opportunity to share data or be part in a remote assistance session with partial all complete control of the target workstation.
3. Drawbacks / flaws: In case you receive a file, it will be saved in the default directory instead of prompting you to choose the location yourself. Of course, the received files directory can be chosen from the options menu. The Web Calling service is available for long distance calls to only a few countries, but the list is growing. The offline messages feature is not working at all; so far, after signing in, I didnt receive any offline messages.
4. In conclusion: Finally a true instant messenger coming from Microsoft. Worth downloading and installing, but still it needs some improvements.
5. The public beta release of Windows Live Messenger has a fresh look and feel - it is easy to personalize and features a toolbar that provides one-click access to customers - favorite services. Some features include the following:
