Posted on 7-Apr-2005 19:44 | Tags Filed under: News



The MSN network of Internet services began rolling out the latest versions of MSN Messenger and MSN Spaces in markets around the world. The company expects new advances in video, voice and personalization features in MSN Messenger will transform the service from being a quick way for people to keep in touch to being an essential life-sharing connection between friends and family.

Integration between MSN Messenger, MSN Spaces and other MSN network services, including MSN Search, gives people flexible way to connect with others through instant messaging, Web logging ("blogging"), and sharing music lists and photos.

Since the MSN Spaces beta version was introduced in late 2004, more than 4.5 million Spaces have been created.

According to the company, more than 155 million customers around the world use MSN Messenger service each month to connect with friends and family and, collectively, exchange more than 2.5 billion instant messages (IMs) every day. The new MSN Messenger 7.0 is now worldwide in 26 languages and introduces improved video, voice and personalization features.

The free MSN Video Conversation service connects users with one-click synchronized audio and video, and offers full-screen video viewing. The software offers the ability to talk over the Internet for free, including a higher-quality audio functionality when compared with previous versions.

The software also includes new personalization options, including Winks, Dynamic Display Pictures and theme packs. USers will be able to choose from a selection of free content or get premium content from companies such as AG Interactive, the media subsidiary of American Greetings Corp., Wisepost/YNK, 3H Group PTY Ltd., Saw-you.com and Techno Design Internet Programming.

Other new features include the the photo-sharing options. Customers will be able to share photos during a conversation and view a slide show together. People can save shared photos and add pictures of their own to the photo swap session.

As part of the round of updates, MSN Spaces, the MSN blogging service, will be available in 15 languages and 30 markets worldwide. Other new features in the latest release of MSN Spaces, include additional storage with capacity to store approximately 750 photos and more than 50 new backgrounds so people can personalize their MSN Space.
