MSN Messenger 7.0 Beta

Microsoft is all set to release the latest limited beta version of its instant messaging client MSN Messenger (rather might have already released it).

The new enhanced version is designed to attract viewers' attention through dubbed "winks", a sound animation, and make the contact's Messenger window vibrate on screen, a "nudge".

Users of MSN Messenger 7.0 will also be able to specify their status before logging in (useful for logging in invisibly). Interestingly, many of the enhanced version's features already exist in its primary competitor Yahoo messenger.

Microsoft also intends to promote other MSN services, especially MSN Search, in the client and is testing services that allow users to purchase additional features such as special emoticons.

While the beta version includes several new features, it does not have all the features Microsoft has planned for MSN Messenger 7.0.

Microsoft hopes to release the final version to all users in the first quarter of 2005, after the public beta test.
