An Overview of Windows Messenger

Windows Messenger is an online, real-time communication program that lets you talk with friends and coworkers across the house or across the world, over the Internet. For starters, Windows Messenger lets you keep track of which of your friends are online at any given time. When they’re online, you can type messages which appear instantly on your friends’ screens.

Depending on your interest and the speed of your Internet connection you and a friend can also communicate by voice, and even use two-way video so you can see as well as talk to each other. You can share a virtual electronic “whiteboard” or chalkboard to make collaborative drawings, or work interactively with a program, using a feature called Application Sharing. All of these capabilities are part of Windows Messenger.
