    The Discussion

      That's great first step. Now you only need to support other protocols like Jabber (as far as I recall Facebook is in fact Jabber so this should be easy), ICQ, etc. and Messenger will become the ultimate IM.

    • miroslavh85

      Jabber would be fine, but ICQ should die finally. It'st he worst client, using the worst protocol existing - full of russian spammers.

      But I don't think MS will implement any other protocols.

      I don't see any Twitter integration. Have I missed it?

    • Stilgar

      That's probably true but once you build a contact base you need it. For example I have like 10 times more ICQ contacts than MSN contacts. ICQ is still very popular in some parts of the world. I don't use the actual ICQ client because I prefer a client that can contain all my IM accounts. Right now my choice is Miranda. I would like to switch to Messenger but it is just not possible now.

      With Video Live Messages Beta service discontinued last month, I was wondering if the Windows Live Team added the capability to create video messages into Windows Live Messenger or Mail.  If so, how do you invoke this?  Thanks

      Is the beta written in WPF?
