    Windows live messenger invites up for grabs.

    Some of you may know already that from some time this year 'msn messenger' is going to be re-branded as 'Windows live messenger'. The new program is in Beta testing at the minute and is invite only.

    I have some invites going spare so if anybody wants one just ask :D

    Let me guess...they've added VoIP, and a load more pointless stuff than the usual?
    Might as well have a look anyway...see if I can get rid of skype and free myself of an application :thup:

    yea theres a few places you can download it but microsoft only allow people to sign in if they are registard as a beta tester.

    so in answer 2 yuor question matt, yea i think it will have to be a hotmail address (or an address you can log into msn messenger with)

    When this thread is over it might be a good idea to remove email addresses to avoid spam..

    tony i could try seding you an invite to this address but im not sure if it will work. microsoft only allow people to sign in to WLM if the address is registared as a beta tester. So i think that you will have to use a hotmail address for it to work. i mite be wrong but that how i understand it to work.

    if you have a hotmail address then you could PM me it or if you want i can try sending you an invite to that address. does anybody else know if it will work?
