Windows Live Messenger Beta Updated

Today Windows Live Messenger Beta (formerly known as MSN) was updated and a lot has changed from the previous beta version. First of all the overall graphical look, now resembles more of MSN 7.5 and although this is no bad thing, it isn’t very original and the colours a little hard on the eyes.

It is far better than the previous beta though, so can’t complain too much, but I look forward to future updates a little more now seeing how much has changed.

Anyone else have a verdict of this latest version?

  • Why where on the internet does it say you have to pay? You sure this isn’t some sort of rumour again?

    I seem to remember these exact same rumours happening before on each evolution of MSN and turning out to be false :)


    well its just forums but again im not using msn if we pay they would loose millions of people:-?
