Updating live messenger
Download Windows Live Messenger 14 from Softonic here.
We don't have any change log information yet for version 16.4.3528 of Windows Live Messenger.
The chat window still features the same design as in version 2009, with large sized avatars and color-coded frames to indicate your current status. There are new ones (like the guy with glasses and mustache, or the faces to express disapproval), though none of them represent a real change.
On the other side, Live Messenger has improved its integration with Windows 7 a lot and makes the most of the operating system’s features.
The bottom area is devoted to ads, as usual, whereas the mail button, which used to notify you of new messages in your Hotmail account, is gone. The emoticons in Windows Live Messenger 2010 have been slightly redesigned.
This first downloadable version of Windows Live Messenger 2010 raises a lot of questions.
The first – and obvious – one: will Microsoft really leave Windows XP out of this new version of Messenger? Or is this incompatibility due to other Live apps, like Movie Maker?
Microsoft announced in January that Windows Live Messenger would be replaced by Skype on March 15, 2013.
Many people have been wondering if you can still use Windows Live Messenger after the cut-off date.
On March 15, it’s unknown how abrupt the closure of Messenger will be.
