Using Windows Messenger to Communicate with Others

With Windows Messenger, you can communicate effectively with others by using text, voice, and video. You can send and receive instant messages to and from your friends, speak to each other, and even see each other. You can also have an instant message conversation with up to four other people at once. Windows Messenger is a great way to communicate instantly when people are online. It’s faster than e-mail, but it doesn’t keep a copy of the correspondence for reference in the future.

With Windows Messenger, you can communicate and collaborate with the people on your contacts list. Your contacts list is a list of friends and associates (your contacts, or “buddies”) who have agreed to communicate with you. You can add others to your contacts list by clicking the Add button in the Windows Messenger window and then following the instructions provided. You can add a contact to your list if you know his or her sign-in name or e-mail address, such as person@hotmail.com.
