MacBU team is all focused on launching the next version of Office for Mac in time for the US holiday 2010 season, and also plans to release a beta version of Messenger for Mac 8 in March 2010. MacBU team have been working hard to include A/V support in Messenger for Mac. A/V support is cross-platform compatible and will work with Windows Live Messenger. Once Messenger for Mac 8 arrives, Mac users’ll be able to share webcam and audio conversations with each other and their Windows counterparts. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed "progress has been slower than expected due to the challenge of connecting to the most current A/V code running on the Windows Live servers. We’ll not have a beta available in 2009, but we are close: we are in "dogfood", and we plan to have the beta available to you by next March."
