How to get the latest version of MSN messenger

MSN (Microsoft Service Network) Messenger is an extremely popular instant messaging service from media giant Microsoft. Thousands of people sign up every day, thus making it crucial to have to keep up with many of your friends. This article will discuss two different types of messaging with MSN, and where you can create each one for absolutely no monetary cost.

Online instant messaging

The first type of MSN messaging is online messaging. This means that you do not have to install any type of software to do it, and you can message from a web browser. This is ideal if you use different computers many times, or if you have a different Operating System from Windows. Note that some advertisements that say you can use them to message online with MSN are fraudulent, and are used to "social engineer" you into giving the site your password (All sites listed in this article are well-established, and known to not be fraudulent by the general public). Ebuddy.com Ebuddy has been established for many years, and is basically an online "all in one" ad supported instant messenger. While it is not officially endorsed by Microsoft, it lets you be connected to many different services like MSN, AIM, Facebook, etc, all in one window. It has a great GUI and is very easy to use. There is also an iPod app available that does the same thing.

Installable messenger

Windows Essentials The other type of messenger is a part of Windows Essentials, and allows you to send instant messages from a program installed on your PC. It is officially created and endorsed by Microsoft, and is virus-free. It has many great features, like giving you an on-screen alert each time a friend messages you, and also has a very user-friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface). Microsoft.com You can download this at Microsoft.com. Just go there and search for "MSN Instant Messenger". This will bring you to the most updated download page. You will most likely need to download Windows Essentials, and then just select MSN Messenger to install, although all of Windows Essential are free and trusted software - seeing as it is coming from Microsoft.
