MSN Messenger for Windows XP 7.5.0322 English version. This Social & Communication Chat & Instant Messaging is free software for Windows Mac Pocket PC developed by Microsoft.

MSN Messenger has been perhaps the biggest hitter of the IM software world for some time now and this update adds a range of cool new features designed to make your chatting experience even better.

Features

Additions in MSN Messenger include an interactive video conversation tool, winks - small animations that you can download and send to your pals - and dynamic display pictures that will change emotions based on the emoticons you send.

Of course, all the features that we've come to know (and in most cases, love) are still housed within MSN Messenger 7.5, such as a plethora of emoticons, the ability to check and send Hotmail directly from the client, and a slick contacts organizer.

Usability

Although MSN Messenger's version has improved video chat and contains the ability to send SMS messages, we can't help feeling that Microsoft has fallen behind in terms of technology. For instance, Skype allows you to perform most of the things that MSN Messenger does, as well as letting you make and receive PC phone calls. You also have the age-old problem of MSN taking over your client, as it's filled with even more ads, and a barrage of links to other areas of the MSN portal.

Discontinuation

While there are many MSN Messenger users, the program feels very outdated. It comes as no surprise that Microsoft has decided to kill MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger and replace it with the more modern and feature rich Skype.

Conclusion

MSN Messenger is a great IM client for beginners but it doesn't beat Skype for the more net-savvy user.

IMPORTANT: Microsoft is replacing Windows Live Messenger with Skype. All your contacts will be moved automatically. Take a look at The Complete Guide to Moving from Messenger to Skype for more information, alternatives and tips.

Msn needs to be brought back. I miss MSN, it was a great way to chat and talk through video to family or friends, it was easy to set up and also for people who had little knowledge for computers, it was a great way to communicate and set up. They need to bring MSN back, a big big mistake getting rid of MSN and replacing it with Skype which is total rubbish Pros: Everything about it Cons: Bringing it back would be a great improvement

NEED my MSN back. I want it BACK. I already HAD Skype but my MSN was used for ONE person and One person only. I could set sounds on it so when they came on I'd hear it. I can't Do that with Skype and I am Very sad MSN is gone. Pros: The sounds I could put on individual people The privacy I had there. Cons: Nothing come to mind except the messenger is gone now, So THAT is missing.
