MSN Messenger – The Future

So it’s been a busy year for the Messenger teams. After the long beta for Messenger 7 we saw a relatively short beta for Messenger 7.5. For most teams, that would be considered enough excitement for one year. Oh no, the Messenger team have yet more surpises in store! Yes, you can expect to start hearing a lot more about Messenger 8.0 and sooner than you might think.
 
So what can we expect from this new version? We all know Messenger can improve in many ways, Jerome listed just a few of them in his recent post that labelled Messenger "not innovative."
 
Some of the pre-beta features include:
  • Tabbed Chatting – Popular request for all modern IM clients.
  • Dashboard/sidebar technology
    • Dock to desktop option
    • Other options include: float, minimize to side and smart resize
  • Pull away (rippable) parts
    • User-customizable layout
    • Multiple bar parts available, including: My Contact Card, Contact list, Tabs, RSS/Subscription info, File sharing info, Ads, Slideshow.
    • Premium bar parts: Encarta, Money, MSN Radio Plus
    • Other bar parts: Search, Radio, Headline, Weather, Traffic, Alerts, Stocks, WMP
  • Direct IM – Partly implemented in v7 and 7.5. Expect much greater use in v8.0

Please remember that the client is still at a pre-beta stage, so features can be cut if major difficulties occur. That said, Messenger will look nice in the Vista sidebar don’t you think 😉
