Messenger Group – Enjoy group chat on your WL Messenger!

Messenger Group, developed with Windows Live Messenger platform, is a service for a group of Messenger users chatting together in real time. Maybe you think that Windows Live Messenger supports multi-conversation, but this multi-conversation is temporary, will be dismissed with the finish of conversation.

I wouldn't expect this kind of junk on the frontpage of neowin. It's been done before, and didn't go anywhere because of lack of interest, though I do have to say this one looks like it will get some marketing (hey neowin), so who knows.

Group chat in IM is bull****, I'd rather use something specifically designed for that (IRC as already mentioned). It is poorly implemented in WLM and the fact no improvements have been made to it for as long as I remember just show Microsoft's commitment (or lack of).

No kidding. It reads like a translation, and a very poor one at that.

Eh?

That's exactly what I thought. =/ This looks suspisciously like IRC, but without the multitude of cross-platform clients.

Indeed, just like IRC, but without bots? :P

Great. More annoying group conversations. Nine tenths of the time it boils my blood when I get invited plunged, into a multi-person conversation because:
1) It's usually always when I'm busy doing work
2) If it isn't while doing work it's while I'm playing a full screen game (and WLM hasn't changed my status to busy) so I constantly get new message noises.
3) The people who normally start them are just doing it to annoy people so therefore when you close the window - BOOM - you've been dragged back into it again by the same idiot with no way of stopping it happen besides from blocking the user.

Admittedly I have used them in the past to arrange nights out with friends but the bad outweighs the good by far.

^What he said. I wish WLM would actually ask you if you want to be spammed like hell, like Steam does.

That's why I keep friends and business on two separate accounts.
ditto. As for the other points just go to "appear offline" if your gaming. If the people annoy you so much why have them on your list?
