Messenger 8 Beta

First of all I gotta give a shout out to Kyle over at Pixel Polarity for kindly giving me an invite to try out the Messenger 8 Beta.

My first impression? I don’t know if I’m biased because of the whole new orange theme it now has, but it looks really really good.

The features:

Your Contacts

* Unified Contacts
* !600 Messenger Contacts
* Word Wheel
* Edit your contact’s Info
* !Nicknames (Rename your contacts)

The Art of Instant Messaging

* !Offline IMs
* !Conversations While Appearing Offline
* !Time Stamps

Messenger Face Lift

* Orange
* !Pick Your Color
* !Toning it Down
* Display Picture Functionality
* Frameless Menu Entry
* !Fixed Scrolling

Sharing

* How-to
* Safety
* Updating Files
* Multiple Computers
* Size Doesn’t Matter
* With whom?

Computer-2-Phone Calling

* !Cheap and easy
* Crystal Quality
* MCI Partnership

Windows Live Video Integration

* See the latest Videos

But all in all it doesn’t really feel that much different, but I’m glad I finally had an opportunity to check it out and will definitely continue to test and use it.

Dennis:

Did you use crack or did you get an invite? I haven’t heard of anyone unable to login when they got an invite. Maybe it’s your firewall or something?

Anyway.. all I’ve heard about the release date is “later this year”..
