Windows Live Messenger Library Beta Released


The Windows Live Messenger Library allows third parties to securely provide web based instant messaging to their users. The WLML is a JavaScript client library; thirdparty.com has full control over the user experience. The library exposes the core text-based messaging functionality, contact list and presence management. WLML works cross browser and cross platform on Windows and Macs.


 


Key Takeaways


·         End Users can now interact and share experiences with their Messenger contacts in more places (more securely than other libraries).


·         ThirdParty.com can increase stickiness by delivering immersive, differentiated experiences and can increase reach by leveraging their user’s social relationships from Windows Live Messenger.


·         Developers can use JavaScript (which they already know) or C# (via Script#) to fully define the messaging experience cross-browser without needing to develop their own messaging platform.


·         Microsoft can increase the overall value of the Windows Live network and provide a safer alternative to rogue web Messenger libraries.
