Editors' Review

+
You'll get the most out of MSN Messenger if you're already a member of MSN or have signed up for its free services. Otherwise, there are better chat clients. MSN requires that you create an account with its own Hotmail (or Passport) program to install the messenger client, and entering your demographic information is not optional. You get a standard chat experience, both one-to-one and multiuser, and extra services such as NetMeeting, which is awkwardly focused on the kinds of remote-conferencing tasks handled through standard VPNs these days. One seemingly attractive feature, Browse the Web Together, turns out to be a feature of MSN 8, not the messenger itself. Prominent tabs for MSN's online services, such as Expedia and MSNBC, are here as expected, and you can sign up for each service to customize the content.

"Great alternative to Skype"

January 05, 2013  |  By DaemonEA

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Windows NT) 5.0.0544

Pros

It is a small program and doesn't take a lot of memory.

Cons

It isn't skype so it may not work for long when they switch over to skype. Also skype has some additional features.

Summary

I downloaded this because Skype took too much memory space (50mb). This is a much smaller program and takes a lot less resources to have running in the background. Works perfect.

"This product hasn't worked at all !"

December 26, 2008  |  By wallywalrus1

 |  Version: MSN Messenger (Windows NT) 5.0.0544

Pros

absolutely nothing to be said in favor of this disaster!

Cons

I haven't been able to sign on even once. I keep getting the message that the service isn't available with every attempt. I can't even uninstall this program to replace it with an earlier version. What a farce! I'm extremely upset and angry.

Summary

Please read the above, and send me a solution asap. Thanks.
