Communicating with Video

If your computer has a “Web” camera installed, or if you have video capture hardware connected to a video camera, you can send pictures of your smiling self while you chat with a friend. Likewise, if your friend has a camera, you'll be able to see them while you chat. It's pretty nifty. It's just like the futuristic Videophone service that the telephone company promised (but never delivered) way back in the 1960s!

NOTE

The video and voice transmission system used by the version of Messenger in Windows XP is not compatible with older versions of Messenger. Your friends may have to upgrade their copy of Messenger if they're not using Windows XP. They should check for updates at www.windowsupdate.microsoft.com or www.microsoft.com.
