We’re saying goodbye to Nimbuzz Widgets

Nimbuzz Widget grayed

Exciting new Nimbuzz technology and product developments mean that we’ll be able to offer a range of even better communication features in the very near future.

To ensure we optimize these other great Nimbuzz features and bring them to users as soon as possible, we are saying goodbye to Nimbuzz Widgets.

So from tomorrow, they will no longer be available to download from www.nimbuzz.com.  Also, existing widgets that have been placed on the profile page of a social network will no longer work.

If you downloaded the Nimbuzz Communicator widget and are using it on Facebook, you won’t have to do anything. We will automatically remove the widget for you – and don’t worry, we won’t disturb your profile when we do it!

If, after the tomorrow, you see a white box where the widget used to be, just click here and you’ll be shown instructions on how to remove it. Full instructions can also be found below.

If you have any problems, please email support (at) nimbuzz.com.

Thanks!

  1. Hello all,
    We have said goodbye to the Widgets as mentioned in this Blogpost in order to provide a a range of even better communication features in the very near future.
    Thanks all for your feedback, we appreciate it and take your opinions into account.
    Regards

  2. Thats a step back, almost a cause for me to change the messenger! Hope you offer something similar!!

  3. Can anyone suggest an alternative widget, now that the plug has been pulled in the Nimbuzz widget? I really loved the Buzz, Send File, and other features that allowed visitors to so easily interface with us through our website.

  4. I think stopping this service is a step backwards, and I think the widget was one of the things which placed Nimbuzz above other simulair software. It gave Nimbuzz just enough extra to be special.

  5. Very pity that this service has been stopped.

    I was looking for it as i played around with it two years ago and now im deploying a new business, where i could use this widget very well.

    Now ill have to look for something else, but will stop nimbuzz altogether.

    Shame really, the development team could have said; we stop innovating the tool, but we will still offer the widget. Now you took away a childs candy and dont offer anything in return.

    I dont like that.

    Regards,
