Windows Live Messenger

I’recently downloaded the beta version of Windows Live Messenger

This is what it says about itself: "Windows Live Messenger will be the next-generation MSN Messenger. It will have everything you already love about Messenger—your contact list, emoticons, and instant access to your friends via text, voice, and video—plus new ways to connect and share documents with almost magical ease."

As always, it will be free to download Messenger and use most of its features.
