Stay in touch with the people who matter
Windows Live Messenger is a great way to stay in touch with your friends. Share photos while you chat. Talk in real time with video chat. Even see the social network updates your friends have shared.
High-definition (HD) video chat
"Meaningful conversations are enhanced by allowing you to see and hear your friends. Talk in real time for free, with high-definition(HD)video chat. * For HD video chat, both users must have the most current version of Messenger installed (2011), compatible HD webcams, a microphone, speakers or a headset, and high speed Internet access."
You can manage all your chats in one location so you can juggle multiple conversations in one place rather than having multiple windows popping up.
Chat from desktop, mobile, or web
Reach your work colleagues and friends quickly and easily with instant messaging wherever you are.
