“Messenger has had groups for some time now, but they were nothing like the new Groups! You can create a group of friends that has its own conversation window, among many other benefits. It’s a whole new way to stay in touch with your sports team, community group, or just a bunch of friends,” the Windows Live Messenger team representative added.
Build 14.0.5027.908 of the IM client is designed to be aware of what a user's friends are up to. In this regard, version 9.0 Beta offers notifications via the What’s New Feed feature every time a buddy makes modifications to their Windows Live Space, the display picture or their status.
“Messenger has always had great ways to express yourself, but in the latest version we take it to a whole new level. Dynamic display photos, animated display photos, and hyperlinked personal status message URLs,… but the most dramatic feature has to be Scenes. Wait until you see it,” promised the member of the Windows Live Messenger team.
In addition, Windows Live Messenger 9.0 (2009) Beta Build 14.0.5027.908 also permits end users to sign in from a variety of locations and from different devices simultaneously. To complete the experience, Microsoft has also improved the photo-sharing capabilities of the instant messaging client delivering two-way synchronization functionality.
