Here's your chance to once again be part of the select group that makes Windows Live Messenger better. We've added new features and we need your help to make sure they're perfect. The new features include:
* Redesigned, smarter contact cards give you more data about and easier access to your friends
* Your display name, status and personal expressions roam with you to any computer
* Two free calls to virtually any phone in the world*
Also, we've made some behind-the-scenes changes to make your Windows Live Messenger experience better than ever. You may not see the upgrades to our underlying platforms, but you'll notice the improvements to our server performance, automatic updates, and sign-in process. All the stuff you had before will still be there, but now, it'll be even better.
*With Verizon Web Calling, you can make two three-minute phone calls to virtually any landline or cell phone worldwide during this beta. Offer not valid for existing Verizon Web Calling customers.
This might mean that there will be some new 8.1 builds soon. We'll just have to wait and see.
