Microsoft to start testing new Messenger

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:18 pm

Microsoft is expected to begin testing soon of Windows Live Messenger, an update that expands the consumer instant messaging software into areas such as Internet phone calling.

The revamp is essentially an expansion of MSN Messenger. It adds a number of features and continues the program’s migration from a place to share short text messages into a manager for any number of modes of communication.

Various enthusiast sites, including Mess.be and BetaNews, reported that a private beta of Live Messenger is imminent, while another fan site, Messenger Blog, offered purported screenshots of the new software. Microsoft declined to comment on Monday, but had promised a beta version would come this month.
