It’s hard to keep up with the number of instant messaging services out there. Windows Phone is home to many of the most popular services, but today we’re going to look at one of the oldest and most resilient platforms out there – ICQ. The official ICQ app for Windows Phone has just had an update, let’s check out what’s new for Windows Phone users.
ICQ was first announced for Windows Phone in late 2011. It then launched a handful of months later in spring 2012 for Windows Phone 7.x users. Today we’re looking at version 220.127.116.113 in the Windows Phone Store that adds:
- Live tile (message notifications)
- Faster launch
We fired up ICQ on our device and did note a speedy start up for the app. We’re sure fans of the app will notice it too. The Live tile should make keeping a tab on messages easier with its ability to display notifications.
ICQ also allows you to chat with other ICQ users. You can interface with Facebook Chat, Mail.Ru agent, Gtalk and Odnoklassniki within the ICQ app.
