Soapbox Launches Messenger Integration

    December 19, 2006

Today the MSN Soapbox Team have launched a new activity feature that will alow you to watch Soapbox videos on Windows Live Messenger in real-time with your friends.

Which is much nicer than just sending them a link! This is how it works:

  • If at any time you would like to watch a video with one of your Messenger contacts, just click on the “share” tab under a Soapbox Video and select “IM this video.”
  • Which then if you are already signed into Messenger, will prompt you to choose which contact you would like to watch the video with. If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to do so.
  • Then after you have choosen the contact, and once the person has accepted your invitation – boom the Messenger Activity Window will launch, with the player in full view. You can now watch the video with your friends and chat about it, all at the same time.

Happy video sharing! :)
