Windows Phone 8 – Now Connected!

wp8

Finally! It’s here!

We know you guys have been asking and waiting for this for quite a while!

We have had quite a few requests about our messenger’s availability on the platform.

Well, Nimbuzz and Windows 8 have come together to enhance the messaging experience on the platform.

We have taken extra care to structure the app in a manner that our users can couple the Nimbuzz experience with the advantages that the Windows 8 platform offers to its users across the world.

Here’s a look at what are some of the additions that we have made to make the Nimbuzz experience for all of you even more pleasurable:

  • Nimbuzz is now available in almost all popular languages spoken across the globe including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Hindi and Arabic.
  • Cool Windows Phone 8 Features including Content Based Live Tiles & Locked Screen Notifications have been included into the messenger
  • Nimbuzz also supports resizable Windows Phone 8 Live Tiles. Users can choose the size they prefer for display on the device’s home screen. A larger Live Tile can also visually alert the user to the number of unread messages. Additionally, The Live Tile, regardless of size, will periodically flip over to show a segment of the content so a user can decide to immediately to respond, to join a chat group or to view later.

The messenger is up for download from the Windows Phone Marketplace and alternatively from here.

Hope you guys enjoy the all new Nimbuzz experience on Windows 8. Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
