iPhone owners can download the app from the App Store free of charge and benefit from all the functionality that regular Windows Live Messenger users will expect.

However, it will not be able to run in the background while other applications are active, which means it does not take advantage of the multitasking features enabled by the iOS 4 platform and the iPhone 4.

The app itself can keep several chat threads in action simultaneously and users will be able to send photos and links to Live friends. It also provides simple access to Hotmail accounts.

Microsoft has made sure that the Windows Live Messenger app for iPhone is able to draw together updates from various social networking sites, including Facebook and Myspace and observers are predicting that an iOS 4 overhaul will be provided via a future update.
