I decided to write a post with some screenshots as it changed quite a bit.. and I have to say it’s becoming sexier at every update they make. And it’s becoming VERY social, as you can connect it with Failbook and MySpace in a few clicks (you get prompted to do so).
The Sign In screen:
The MySpace login screen (haven’t tried Failbooks):
The new WLM full view, featuring news from your myspace or failbook contacts, photos, statuses etc:
And the compact version (very similar to the old one except I find it cleaner):
The conversation windows (note they are tabbed by default):
New emoticons (the old one were nicer IMO, maybe I’m just used to them):
New sharing in the conversation:
And that’s about it, I think it’s what’s changed. I didn’t see the OneCare options for antivirus checking of received files so maybe that’s been removed (I hope so).
I also can’t seem to find where to change my nick (as you can see it’s nasal Kovac which was my nick + my surname and I’m really not sure where to change this, no option in the options but a button that connects me to the profiles.live.com page… whooot).
