Hey, been a long msn user. just installed the beta few weeks ago. just wondering if any notice a real good advantage on it versus the 8.5 and 7.1? only thing need is the .Gif in the display pics[finally].
Sad thing i wanted custom emotions in screen names. Also a new feature is the "personal sounds".
Windows Live Messenger 9.0 Beta is closed off to the public though.
I need to check this out when it is officially released (Don't have BETA access ). Anyways here is the description/new updates to Windows Live Messenger 2009 (9.0) from Wikipedia:
it is nice but a little bit of problem when i tried it. perhaps i will wait till the final release of this software before i upgrade my current version of it.
8.5? I've been using 8.1 and I thought I had the latest stable (by microsoft standards) version.
Oh well getting latest now...
I'm using WLM 8.5 at the moment, but I wonder what Microsoft will have in the 9th version of it.
Actually, I don't recall any really major changes from version 7 to the 8th, except some minor ones such as buddy profiles. I hope the 9th will blow me away, although you can't expect too much out of Microsoft.
you'll barely see ne change asides from .gifs in ur d/p
im sure a 9th version will be made. im sure there will be one day with considerable changes. im predicting one major one aswell.
Should microsoft buy yahoo, which im sure they will as yahoo is going nowhere at the moment. They will incorporate yahoo messenger and live messenger together. Giving microsoft an even bigger hold on this market.
there already is a 9 out, im running it through beta.
considerable changes include:
Personal Sounds (for when a contact messages you, when a contact signs on etc...)
Block and Report as a spammer (dont know if it works)
some more games
Gif images for display pictures
they kinda already have combined the two services. You can talk to people on Yahoo messenger from MSN though I'm not sure if it works the other way round. It doesn't look like MS will buy them now though - seeing as Yahoo doesn't want their money
Yep, yahoo is trying to struggle for money now, that's what happens when they spam there shit, and sell out too people.
have they added an always on top button? that's what i REALLY want!
I'm gonna wait Messenger 9 comes out of beta stage. Microsoft beta software usually give enough headaches. I Hope they have enough interesting things packed up in it to make it wroth to upgrade.
I use Miranda IM's MSN Messenger plugin. Saves a lot of useless and/or annoying features (such as nudges...)
I use MSN 8.5 with MSNPlus! I want to try 9, but I doubt it'll be any better. I wish I had Beta access.
I think I also use 8.5 and msn plus...
Anyone got any ideas on what messenger 9 should behold? =O
l've been using the beta since it first was leaked (literally, l think the first day it was leaked). But l use A-Patch and haven't had any issues or headaches anyone speaks of So l have no idea why anyone worries nor why microsoft still in it's beta stage of things....?
beta is not good ilike full version
its not as good in my opinion 2 much like how it was in version 7
l'm now using WLM 9.0 Wave 3 beta, its ALOT better then the previous, only downside is a smiles issue.
I'm using the 2009 version, although not too sure which one. I got MSNPlus with it, and I love the new layout. Pretty cool!
i used to be a big user of msn live messenger. but since co-workers at work use Yahoo, i had to switch. but running Yahoo messenger and live messenger takes up too much system resources. and i dont normally use the fancy features they both have. so switched to pidgin. it does have problems many times. so switching between Trillian and pidgin. waiting to see what trillian astra has to offer.
I'm using WLM 2009 now. I like the new look and new icons, but one bad thing is they don't provide the offline installer, so I have to be online each time I want to install it to my computers.
MSN Plus is filled with crap, if you want ad's removed and stuff, try out A-Patch Been using it for years and kept it a secret from my friends until last year, selfish l know but hey, that's what happens when you know the interwebs!
