In addition to Microsoft’s login pages given the Metro UI redesign, it looks like its Web Messenger service will be given the same treatment as well. The folks over at Liveside.net managed to find a way to access an early version of the new Metro-style Web Messenger, and judging by initial screenshots – it does look pretty sweet. It resembles the Windows 8 messaging app, so if you’re used to it you’ll feel at home.
At the moment, it works just like the current Web Messenger, but clues in its source code hint at video and audio calls in the future. Perhaps Skype integration? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. If you’d like to try out the new Web Messenger, head here (you need to be signed in, if not you’ll need to sign in and enter the URL again). Check it out and let us know what you think.
