IM+ Windows 8 app gets updated and optimized for Windows 8.1
im+ windows 8.1If you have been using IM+ on Windows 8 and have experienced issues when finally upgrading to Windows 8.1, then your issues could have ended. The IM+ app has been optimized for Windows 8.1 and you can get it from the Windows Store as of now. This isn’t just a minor update, like with Facebook, Box or Wikipedia but a serious move forward from the IM+ team.

Here is the changelog of the Windows 8.1 update for the IM+ app:

  • Support for Windows 8.1
  • New Small and Big tiles
  • Support of MSN contacts in Skype
  • Ability to send messages to offline VK.com contacts
  • New emoticons
  • Ability to see who of your ICQ contacts are connected on mobile
  • Message queue
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes

The guys over at WpCentral have did a very fine job explaining what these feature mean in detail, so if you’re an avid IM+ user on Windows 8, I suggest you to have a read. For those of you who are a new to IM+, you should know that it is called the “all-in-one messenger” because it connects to a plethor of chat services such Windows Live Messenger, Facebook, Skype chat, Google Talk, AOL/AIM/iChat, Yahoo!, ICQ, Vkontakte, Mail.Ru Agent, Odnoklassniki, Yandex chat, Mamba.Ru, Mig33, SINA Weibo, Renren, Fetion, Gadu-Gadu, MeinVZ and Jabber.

There’s no need to download all the above mentioned messaging web clients or apps – just use the IM+ in Windows 8.  You can choose the free or the paid version of IM+.
