Official Windows Messenger Live BETA Thread


 Share

Recommended Posts

Offline messaging refers to the fact you can send a message to someone who is offline, as in, doesn't have their computer on or connected to MSN. It stores the message server side and delivers it when the person signs on. Yahoo has been doing this for years.

So has ICQ, I missed that since the majority of my friends switched to MSN.

i noticed a bug.. you can talk to people when appearing offline

If you use trillian you can do this as well on MSN. if you are online and start a conversation with someone you can go invisible and still carry on a conversation.

The thing that bothers me the most is not actually to obtain the official WLM Beta, but the desing of the new messenger. In fact it looks much like the Wave 11 concept screenshots posted on the web a while ago, but its graphics are uglier.

So what i would like to know, is the desing going to improve during the approach to the Final release, or is it going to look mostly like it does right now??

Check out the screens for comparison...

I thought this thread got closed ...

Edit: oop, it was the requesting invites that got closed

yup - 60'ish pages of people whining and complaining and begging was just a darn good waste of space
