I downloaded and installed Messenger 6.2 yesterday, and its kinda neat so far. I noticed it hasn’t come up as an update on my other MSN installations, so download it yourself at http://messenger.msn.com. Here are the new features I have noticed:
- Emoticons appear as pictures in your edit box now (immediately after you type one), not only in the messages box.
- There is a new default group if you sort your contacts by Online/Offline called Mobile. I like how the members of this group appear in gold 🙂
- Instead of “Launch Site” you now have “Fun & Games”. Doesn’t look like any new games however.
So those are the most noticable things. If you use MsgPlus you’ll need to get the latest update too. I also found http://ilovemessenger.msn.com where you can download emoticons, display pictures and backgrounds. I still like my pictures better 🙂
