The Windows Live Video Messages team just announced on their blog that their website will get an update in two weeks. Included in this update will be a change in the header to match the rest of the Windows Live Wave 3 properties. Here’s a list of updates the team posted on their blog:
Easier to use and find functionality, especially creating new videos One click access to other Windows Live services via top header Full support for Internet Explorer 8 (you won’t need to run in compatibility mode) Bug fixes Update: Ability to save video message to a local drive for website users (gadget users have always been able to do this) Update: Stay tuned for more!
Windows Live Video Messages was released not long before the Wave 3 theme was revealed, and it had always been criticised for not having the same standardised header as any other Windows Live services. It’s definitely a smart move to give it a consistent look with each of the other Wave 3 services.
It seems like Video Messages isn’t the first to revamp to the standardised Wave 3 header – not long ago FrameIt and Sync were just given the facelift – and it sure looked impressive. Which makes us wonder what will come next? Perhaps My.Live.com, Gallery or even Alerts (which still has the Wave 1 header)? We sure hope Microsoft haven’t forgotten about them!
