About MSN Messenger

MSN Messenger is a free program that is designed to let its users communicate with other people, who also have this program installed on their computers, by sending each other instant messages, photos and other files in real time. It is basically a simple tool to stay in touch with your friends and meet new people online.

Since that day, Microsoft has been adding many new cool features each year to make MSN Messenger into one of the most popular Instant Messaging services ion Earth, with a user base counting hundreds of millions of active subscribers. Although most users still call it MSN Messenger, or even simply “MSN”, but in December 2005 Microsoft had it renamed officially as Windows Live Messenger.
