There are several major messaging services available for Windows 10 devices, with Skype as the undisputed leader. In fact, there was a Skype desktop client update just a few days ago. But that doesn’t mean competitors are simply taking a loss: another messaging software called ICQ was recently updated as well.

ICQ Windows client gets updated with new features

ICQ is one of the oldest instant messaging programs, with its first version released almost 20 years ago. Although this application has lost popularity over the years, it’s great to see that its developers are still adding new features. Let’s examine some of them.

The first new noteworthy feature is support for free, high-quality video and audio calls. In addition, support for group chat has been added. On top of that, the ICQ client underwent a visual overhaul and now sports a new, visually appealing design.

History synchronization is up next. With this new feature, users can access conversation history on any device with the ICQ client installed. That will come in handy being that ICQ also supports file transfers, allowing users to easily share any type of file less than 4GB.

All these new features will certainly benefit from ICQ’s new notification settings synchronization, meaning that all notifications settings will be synced between all of a single user’s devices. And last but not least, there are now free stickers ICQ users can send to friends and family.

This is a major patch for ICQ, and it’s great to see that one of the pioneers of instant messaging software is still getting updates. If you want to try ICQ out, you can download it from here.
