Back in 2007, I was a big fan of Yahoo Messenger, especially because I didn’t have a Facebook account, not even a Google Account, to chat with anyone. Things have changed, like many (not everyone) I don’t use messengers on my Windows.
Along with Yahoo Messenger, AIM was also very popular for instant message. Today both these services are losing out big time. In order to make a comeback, AOL announced that AIM is no more orthodox, and released its new IM client, the AIM Preview.
Features of AIM Preview
- Chat with your Gtalk, Facebook and AIM buddies all at one place.
- Group chat with your friends, share photos and videos, along with one-to-one video chat.
- Get Facebook, Gmail, Instagram and Twitter notifications right inside AIM, instantly.
- If you’re using AIM for iPhone, then it syncs the message history with the desktop version.
I have a bad experience with Facebook Chat and if you have similar issues then AIM is your best bet. It’s not the only IM client, as you have great alternatives like Digsby, Pidgin and all, but it’s hard to disagree that AIM has improved.
It’s available for Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android. Try it out and tell us how you like it.
