Windows Live Messenger Beta Version 2009

Have you tried the new beta version Of Windows Live Messenger?

I've just downloaded it and it sounds pretty good to me.

What's new on WLMB:

1- Choose between three different picture sizes for you contacts List.

2- Add and drop contacts to a favorite contact list.

3- You can sing in to Messenger in more than one place and get instant mesegaes everywhere you're signed in.

4- A list of different builtin sounds for your messenger.

5- You can add your own signature sound "the sound your contacts hear when you sign in".

6- Automatically Scan your MSN received files for viruses.

7- Different scene for your main window.

You may notice the sound for nudge and other sound files on this new version lower than it should be. To adjust the volume for your WLMB all what you have to do is to click on your speakers volume icon on the lower right of your taskbar and then click on mixer where you will find Window Live Messenger beta under device!

update: to install the Final version 2009 build 14.0.8050.1202

    You can not use MSN plus with this new messenger version! guess it will take some time until they do the updated version of MSN plus for WLM!

  9. hey was jw if u cud help iv got the 2009 version but its really annoying me at the moment coz wen i get a new message frm someone tht im tlking to and the window is minimized my taskbar icon fing wont flash it jsut makes the noise that messenger does for wen u receive a new message but the taskbar thing doesnt flash u got any ideas on what i can do?

    You go to Option/Messages under Alerts, tick on Display Alert when a message is received. this should make the messenger icon in your task bar to flash.
    and to if you want to stop the noise when you receive a message from your contact go to Option/Sounds click on the down arrow for "New instant message" and choose "Don't a play sound".
    Don't forget to click on Apply after making your preference.
    That should make the change to your settings. However if you still face the same problem:
    1- uninstall the software and then install again.
    2- update your beta version. There is a new update for this version I've just did it yersterday.
    If you still have the same problem, let me know.

  11. I have the exactly same problem, When people speak to me and the window is minimize the icon don't flash.
    I have the option activated and i reinstall the program 3 or 4 times.
    Any idea why the icon don't flash??

    Why don't you try the latest and final version 2009 build 14.0.8050.1202 instead of beta.

    As for me I am not facing this problem!

  13. I have the latest version with the 'display alert when a message is recieved' option enabled but my task bar still doesn't flash.

    Maybe it has something to do with tabbed chats in msn plus? Thats the only thing i can think of.
