Office for Mac to get Messenger A/V support in March

updated 06:35 pm EST, Tue December 22, 2009

Beta behind schedule but still coming

Microsoft has announced that Office for Mac is set to get beta support for A/V content in Messenger for personal users. The company's MacBU GM Eric Wilfrid admits that the project is running late, as the added functionality was originally expected to be offered as a beta by the end of 2009. The service is currently in the "dogfood" stage of internal testing.

Corporate users can already take advantage of the A/V support, which can be used for virtual meetings conducted via audio or video calls. Office Communications Server 2007 is required for the extra features.

The next version of Office for Mac is said to be ready before the holiday season next year. The A/V support is reportedly on-track to be ready for a public beta sometime in March.

    A little late

    If they had come with this a couple of years back, it would still have been something to care about, but today I am afraid that MSN is not something people care much about anymore...

    Stunning accomplishment

    Beta AV features next year....wow that is progress.
    Now if they can only figure out how to allow HTML in Entourage they will be on par with 2004 features of iChat and Apple mail.
