Windows Live Messenger turns 10

Posted on: July 25, 2009

Today marks Windows Live Messenger’s tenth anniversary. The client has 330 million users that send 9.4 billion messages per day.

wlm-logo10 years ago today, MSN Messenger version 1.0 was released to the world. A decade later, we’re at Windows Live Messenger version 2009. Despite the different name, it’s still run on the same IM network which just so happens to be the world’s most popular. To celebrate, Microsoft has a website in the US and in the UK where it is offering an anniversary gift pack with free themes and emoticons for download. The software giant has also put together a five-minute video for the tenth anniversary of Messenger:

In anticipation of the anniversary, Microsoft revealed earlier this month that Windows Live Messenger had 330 million active users. Today, the software giant is throwing a few more numbers out: users login to Windows Live Messenger on average three times a day. More interestingly though, Redmond says there are on average 9.4 billion messages sent per day, meaning 290 billion messages sent every month, via Windows Live Messenger.
