I hope this is true because the turn out of this removal has caused a lot of complaints :P This might show Windows Live that people do USE it.

You can not use 8.5 anymore (without hacks) since a while.

Um, exactly? Just because it requires a simple string change doesn't mean people aren't using it.

you misunderstand I think. What I said is quite the opposite.
It is not because like 10000 people complain about it that it means "a lot" of people use it, etc. 10000 people out of more than 1/4 billion of Messenger users is extremely small, and thus a very justified decision to not invest in it anymore. Same reason why they don't develop programs for Win95 anymore...

Either way, a lot of people hate it and it was a wrong decision. Having only video calling doesn't benefit anyone in anyway than not having single webcams.

High quality video? That's just a lame excuse. When this new version is released fully I can't wait for the 5 posts a day on how to get there webcam to work..

You missed his point entirely....again.  A "lot"  people don't hate it.....a few thousand people complaining out of the millions of Messenger users doesn't constitute a lot.  And the benefit has already been explained, if you don't want to believe it, that's up to you but asking the same questions over and over again won't get different answers.

No benefit has been explained, because there is literally no benefit.

Higher quality video, that has been explained numerous times by myself, by CookieRevised, by Microsoft themselves

Nope, that doesn't make sense, as anyone with even a cursory knowledge of software development would know.

I'm not talking about bogus rationalizations. I'm talking about actual, concrete benefits.

I want to elaborate a little bit more on some comments Im seeing here about issues with the webcam feature. Heres a little background.

The next version of Windows Live Messenger, releasing globally in the coming months, features two-way calling with high quality audio and high-definition video. This enhancement required significant changes in the audio and video stack used across all of our Windows Live services. This weeks Wave 3 update (called QFE3) upgrades the current release of Messenger with the new stack. As part of this upgrade, we are retiring one-way webcam functionality.

We never take the decision lightly to remove a feature, but we think that the improvements in performance and call quality for Wave 3 customers and the addition of high-definition video for Wave 4 customers made this the right decision.


Reject it if you want, but that is the benefit and the explanation.
