"This works because you can use it on the web."

August 14, 2010  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: Nimbuzz 1.2.1

Pros

You can download this or use it on the website without downloading it.

Cons

I do not like the fact that Ihad to give my mobile phone number also you cannot log out of your account easy.

Summary

This is the same type of messengers as Meeboo,you can do live chat to your friends an any messenger network,Google,Yahoo messenger etc just by logging into your Nimbuzz account on the web page. The only difference is you can download the Nimbuzz messenger and use it from your desktop like you do with Yahoo messenger but you don't have to because you can just use Nimbuzz from their website without having to download anything. I admit I am just using nimbuzz by just visiting their website and using the live chat from there. Because I have had so many problems with mulit network messengers I do not want to download another software,that I may have to uninstall again if it is not working. But as I said you DO NOT HAVE TO download nimbuzz because you can use it from the website.Like you can with Meeboo but Meeboo does not have any messenger you can download but Nimbuzz does have if you want it. But you can just use it from the website if you want to. The only thing I do not like is that it does not log you out of your account after you have finished using it. Which could be a problem if you are using Nimbuzz from a public computer such as in an Internet cafe. But otherwise this messenger works well. But you can only do live chat by email,Nimbuzz does not support voice or video chat,but the email chat works without any problems.

Last time I wrote about Nimbuzz I had only tried the web version and this works very well. But Nimbuzz also has a small desktop messenger you can download and use the same way you do with Aim and windows live messenger. So I downloaded the desktop messenger. And although Nimbuzz desktop messenger worked okay with email it does not support video chats although you can do voice chats with your contacts on other networks if they are online. Nimbuzz supports Google Talk,Aim messenger,Yahoo and windows live. But I found that i could not change my setting on the desktop messenger,so i had to go onto the website,to do this in the web messenger. Nimbuzz also has a web messenger that is exactly the same as the desktop messenger and works exactly the same as Nimbuzz desktop. But I have uninstalled Nimbuzz because as I can use it from the web I do not need the extra software on my desktop. Also the downloaded version of Nimbuzz,Nimbuzz desktop does not work as well as the web version.

Nimbuzz has now brought out a new version,Nimbizz 1.3 but unfortunently it is not like the old version. In this version,Nimbuzz 1.3 which came out on 20th August 2010 a few days ago,you can do live email chat but NOT voice chat as Nimbuzz have now got rid of this feature for the computer version. So you are better off using another messenger where you can do both voice and video chat.
