Windows Live Messenger 2012

So much for free in one simple download, including Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, and Messenger.

Windows Live Messenger remains an important player on the market and the new generation MSN Messenger follows the same trend as its competitors to include all kinds of communication features, such as video chatting, file transfer and phone calling.

Windows Live Messenger makes it easier than ever to stay connected to the people you care about.

* Favorites and groups - Put the people you chat with most at the top of your contacts, so you easily see when they're online. Want to chat with several people in one window? Just set up a group.
* Share photos - Look at photos together, right in the conversation window. And Messenger tells you when people you know post new photos on Windows Live.
* Customize - Show off your personal style with custom scenes, animated display pictures, and signature sounds.
* Mobile and web - Using a public computer without Messenger? No problem! You can chat on the web from Windows Live Hotmail. Or, use Messenger on your mobile phone.
