Microsoft sends out Windows Live Messenger 9.0 beta invites

No sooner has the Windows Live Wave 2 suite been released than the first Wave 3 beta begins - Windows Live Messenger v9. Unlike the betas that have just finished, the Messenger v9 beta is being run from Microsoft Connect as a private beta, meaning that, for the moment at least, unless you receive an invite, you won't be able to participate.

For the moment it looks like most previous Windows Live testers are getting invites, so stay tuned to your inbox. With such a popular beta like this, you better sign up quick.

So what's new? While the goodies aren't yet available, we've heard about Multiple Points Of Presence (MPOP) support, which allows you to sign in from multiple devices, ie be online at two places at once.

exactly, most instant message programs start to be over-craped... live messenger is one of them (One day I log in, and I see 10 tabs on the left. wtf. I know how to turn them off, but hey, does anyone actually use that?)

I got an invite and joined but I don't think we will be getting a download link in a while... still seems way early and if the current build is dogfood then who knows how long until they release it even to private testers?

I got the invite today and joined. :P

I'm really looking forward to Multiple Points Of Presence (MPOP) support.
