Windows Live Messenger - How can I try the Windows Live Messenger Metro style application for Windows Developer Preview? RRS feed


  • Hey Waheb09,


    Some of the features that were shown at the Build conference are not included in Windows Developer Preview. Please see the quoted information below from the Building Windows 8 blog:

    "NOTE: The preview build does not include every feature shown this morning.  Shown but not in the Developer Preview release include the Windows Store, Windows Live Metro style apps, and some of the user interface features.  The focus of the preview is the API and development tools for building Metro style apps."
