Stay in touch with the people you care about most from your PC, your phone, or the web.
Windows Live Messenger combines the best IM with connections to your social networks, so you stay in touch with the people who matter most to you. Share photos and personal videos while you chat, video chat in high definition* or send video messages to friends. You can also play games with friends and express yourself with emoticons or a display picture that changes with your mood.
