Get creative with all the ways you can connect online, starting with a more powerful Hotmail® and Windows Live™ Messenger. Windows Live has taken Hotmail to a whole new level—with a consolidated address book, new layout, and the helpful new features our users demanded. Plus, now that you can IM your Messenger contacts while checking e-mail right from your Hotmail inbox, it’s never been easier to stay in touch.

Here are a couple other very cool ways Windows Live can help you say a lot more with your messaging:

With Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s easy to import, edit, and share your photos through e-mail or IM. Tagging helps keep pictures organized so that great shot from the family reunion or the big game is easy to find. And our editing tools help make every snapshot look professional.

Since Windows Live is all about connecting people, Windows Live Groups is now built right in to your e-mail, IM, and photos. Your team or organization’s own page is the perfect place to chat instantly with a group IM, view group calendars, share photos, use message boards, or post announcements.
