Today we just announced the new Windows Live Messenger Preview which will be available for download soon at www.messengerpreview.com. I’ve been running this for quite awhile now as part of an internal beta program and it’s pretty cool what we’ve done with this version. We kind of broke this down into 3 areas: Improving the IM Experience, Staying in Touch with Close Friends and Bringing Messenger to other services such Hotmail the web and your phone. Here’s a short list of what you can expect:
Of course there is more so make sure you check it out the preview for yourself at the Messenger Preview site and check out the Windows Live Team Blog for more details of the philosophy behind this version.
It appears the download isn't available yet.... gotta keep waiting :-)
