Windows Live Messenger made available as iPhone app

Just one more way to keep in touch with your chums

Microsoft has today finally launched the official Windows Live Messenger iPhone app allowing users to use the hugely popular instant messaging service from their mobile handsets.

Much like its computer counterpart, the free-to-download Live Messenger app will let users communicate with their friends and access their Hotmail inboxes from their Apple smartphones.

Push notifications of conversations and friend requests are available with the new iPhone app, as is the ability to upload and share images through instant messages direct from the handset’s photo library.

A missing integration on the new Live Messenger app, however, is the inclusion of the multi-tasking ability that is to be made possible by the new iOS 4 operating system due to be launched today (June 21st) for existing iPhone models.

Following the recently updated new-look of Windows Live Messenger, the IM app will feature the improved social media integration that has proved popular with its desktop-bound sibling.

Available now from the App Store, the Windows Live Messenger app is shortly to be joined by another new Microsoft iPhone app as the PC giants announced the immenent launch of a separate Hotmail app, a confusing announcement seeing as though the iPhone already offers push emails from user’s Hotmail accounts to their Apple handsets.
