Windows Live Video Messages joins the Wave 3 family too, update coming soon! (Updated)

Vmessages 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, Gallery or even Alerts (which still has the Wave 1 header)? We sure hope Microsoft haven’t forgotten about them!
