Inside Windows 8: The Messaging Application

The Messaging application is found in the Windows 8 Metro Interface.

Clicking on the tile gets you to this splash screen.

This takes you to the Messaging screen.

You can use this application to chat with other Windows 8 users who are on chat.

This app seems to be an attempt to compete with other Yahoo Messenger type applications and you will be able to chat straight from Metro.

    The chat integrates with Facebook. Whenever someone messages me on facebook, the app sends a push notification along with live tile description.

        By the way, looking at your screenshot, I can see you are already connected to Facebook. If you were curious, you could start a facebook chat from the app by right-clicking and clicking new. That will bring up your list of contacts, including facebook friends. Just click on a a contact to start chatting.

    I like to use the desktop full screen, then when I get a message notification in the top-right corner, I click it, then snap the Messenger app to the right side of my screen.  Then I can continue working on the desktop while reading and replying to messages on the right.  I can do this very quickly just by clicking the notification, then pressing Ctrl+. then Ctrl+D.  If you prefer the left side, you can press Ctrl+. twice, then press Ctrl+D.
