Notes

Due to a change by Microsoft in the way Messenger handles AV protocols, this latest release of aMSN does not support video at the moment although the developers hope to resolve this soon. It should also be noted that the latest release of Microsoft Messenger for Mac does now support audio and video.

Pros
  • More features than MSN
  • Extended customization
  • Usually allows use of webcams (although temporarily disabled in this update)
  • Allows you to sign into multiple accounts at once
Cons
  • Many users report problems opening webcams
  • Webcam/Audio support disabled in this update
  • Only supports audio clips not audio chats in realtime
