If you canít wait to use the upcoming Windows
8.5 you could try and download the leaked version of it which is not official of course. The language of the leaked
Live Messenger 8.5 is Spanish but you could download
language file as well to change the language to English.
The program itself got a complete new user interface
better suited for Windows Vista
plus additional changes which have not been announced yet. Windows Plus users should download the msimg32.dll
and place it in the appropriate directory to add plus functionality again. Not everything will be working though as of now.
I would probably make at least a complete backup
of my system before I would install this leaked version. The above version appears to be without the adware
that was added by the initial leaker. You should still scan the downloaded files before you execute any of them.
