Steve Ballmer previewed last day Windows Live Messenger in Brazil. He talks about the cloud and the new features in store for Messenger customers.
Windows Live Messenger is the first application of Wave 4 to be unveiled, will bring a greater number of games, the creation of badges, more integration with social networks and the possibility to leave a video message to friends who are off line. Other thinks that you can find are the search results integrated with Bing, support for high definition video messages, the new tab management for different conversations, integration with Hotmail and Messenger Companion, also an add-on for Internet Explorer. The last think that I want to quote is availability and the support for mobile devices (OS) as: Windows Phone, iPhone and BlackBerry.
Window Live Messenger in Windows 7 is removed from System tray. But this option was really comfortable. Many users are asking how to have back MSN Icon to System Tray. There is no special mod to do this, just a simply change of compatibly mode.
Move Windows Live Messenger to Notification Area:
1- Right Click on Windows Live Messenger Icon on Desktop or inside All Programs –> Windows Live and select Properties.
A new way to introduce the new features for Gmail. While opening the mail box this morning I get this popup window. Gmail’s labeling toolkit now have a new location and hiding label. Added also the drag and drop options. Let’s have a closer look:
1) New location for labels
You’ll notice your labels in a new location on the left of your inbox (or on the right, for those of you using the Arabic, Hebrew, or Urdu versions of Gmail). Instead of having their own section, your labels are now above your chat list, grouped together with Inbox, Drafts, Chats and other system labels.
Gmail now migrates email and contacts from other email providers, including Yahoo!, Hotmail, AOL, and other providers. It’s much easier to make the transition now that you can bring along all your old email and contacts. You can even have your messages forwarded from your old account for 30 days, giving you time to take Gmail for a test drive while you make up your mind.
This new feature is available in all newly-created Gmail accounts, and it is slowly being rolled out to all existing accounts. It’ll take longer than the few hours or days that most Gmail features take to get out to everyone.
New feature in Gmail Labs. Turning On "Inserting images" will allows you to insert images into a message body. You can upload and insert image files in your computer, or insert images by URLs.
Go in Lab area in your Gmail account and find Inserting images features:
Updates for Windows Live Suite. Microsoft has updated the Messenger client to Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8050.1202) as can see above from the about Window Live Messenger window.
There are minor changes in User Interface and we have a new Icon for Messenger.
