A fresh new look at Windows Live Home Wave 4 (Part 1)

Remember last time we showed you a glimpse of Windows Live Home Wave 4? More information has poured in today showing the capabilities of the “Share something new” box. It happens that unlike Twitter (or the current Windows Live implementation) which only allows you to post status updates, the box in Wave 4 is much more like Facebook which allows you to upload and share your photos or documents – directly from within the box! Here’s a few screenshots of it in action:

Clicking on “Document” expands the box to allow you to select a document from you computer:

After you click “Share”, the document will be uploaded to your SkyDrive (or Windows Live Docs) and the box will show the following:

Windows Live Home - Shared a document

However, it seems that the box does not allow you to update your Personal Status Message (on your Profile / Messenger) this way. Perhaps it has not yet been implemented – do take in mind that these screenshots are taken from pre-release versions and features are most likely still incomplete. At least these show a bit about what’s to come in Wave 4! Stay tuned at LiveSide for more information about Windows Live Home Wave 4!
