I have been working on Messenger for 4 years and it is amazing to me how we have expanded the communication horizons in this time. When I joined we did Text IM and some Voice and Video (but it didn’t always work). Now we have Text IM, Reliable Voice, Video and Webcam (picture only). When your buddies are offline and around town, you can send mobile messages via SMS to their mobile phone. Or leave them Offline IM for when they return. You can even call their phone from Messenger! All of these options can be found by right clicking a buddy. You will get the menu below. Happy communicating!
