Windows Live Messenger makes it easier than ever to stay connected to the people you care about.
- Favorites and groups: Put the people you chat with most at the top of your contacts, so you easily see when they're online. Want to chat with several people in one window? Simply set up a group.
- Share photos: Look at photos together, right in the conversation window and Messenger tells you when people you know post new photos on Windows Live.
- Customize: Show off your personal style with custom scenes, animated display pictures, and signature sounds.
- Mobile and web: Using a public computer without Messenger? No problem! You can chat on the web from Windows Live Hotmail or use Messenger on your smartphone.
Get Messenger and stay in touch.
After months of work, and two beta releases the Windows Live Messenger team is proud to release Windows Live Messenger 8.5! We've listened to the feedback from our beta users and made this one of the best versions of Messenger ever!
If you were a beta user not much has changed for you. We worked hard to improve the overall quality of Messenger though, and we owe a big Thanks!! to all of the beta testers that sent us feedback.
