A few days ago I was discussing with you the latest update that popular social networking app for Windows 8 Vkontakte has received. That was the moment when somebody about the official Odnoklassniki app – and here’s our quick coverage.

Just like Vkontakte, the official Odnoklassniki app for Windows 8 and the overall service, is mostly popular in Eastern Europe, especially in such countries as Ukraine and Russia. But unlike Vkontakte and even ICQ for Windows 8, which is also popular among those from Russian speaking countries, Odnoklassniki is available only in the Russian language, and its title sounds like this – Одноклассники. I hope that a future update will bring also the English version of the social app, but that’s highly unlike, given the small number of those users.

By using the official Odnoklassniki app on your Windows 8, Windows 8.1 device, be it a desktop or a hybrid, touch device, you can experience the same features that the web app comes with. You can send and receive messages with your friends, see their pictures and recent activities, communicate with a group of friends. By pinning the app to the Start Screen, you can get real time updates through a live tile of your own chosen size.

For example, if you have some unread messages, you will see this on your live tile and even on the locksreen, if you choose so. Trademark emoticons from the Odnoklassniki service are also present, so you can use them to give more meaning to your social activity. As for the latest updates that the app has received, we’re talking mainly about speed improvements, bug fixes and stability improvements. A really cool new and really useful feature is the fact that the app now consumes much less data.

Also, there have been added improvements to the messaging feature – now, replies from your contacts to your messages are highlighted and you can mark them with a special sign in the menu for later view. It’s funny that the update says the app now works in English, and I can confirm this too, but its description has remained in Russian. Anyway, follow the link from below and download it to your devices.
