Windows Live Messenger gives you brilliant ways to connect and share your photos (and other stuff). Contact lists, emoticons, instant access to your friends. It's free to download Messenger and use most of its features.

Talk to your Yahoo! friends, too
With Windows Live Messenger, you can now connect with your Yahoo! friends. Forget about using multiple accounts to talk to your friends. You can do it all directly from Windows Live Messenger.  Learn more.

PC-to-PC Calling
Speak your mind: Have a high-quality voice conversation using PC-to-PC Calling. Free.*

Even better video conversations
Those old science fiction movies with TV phones? That's what the new Windows Live Messenger gives you, only better: live, full-screen (640x480) video.**

Sharing Folders
Drag a file onto a contact’s name. You’ve just created a Sharing Folder. Now you and your contact can get to all the files in the folder any time, even if one of you is offline.

Text message their phones
See a little mobile icon next to a friend's name? Just right-click to send a text message.†\

Your tow-way super powered address book
With Windows Live Contacts, whenever your contacts update their information, it will also be changed in your Messenger address book. Instantly. (Your Windows Live Hotmail address book will be updated, too.)

Windows Live Alerts
Headlines, sports scores, traffic, or just about anything else you want to keep up with—get pop-up notifications of things as they happen.
