The first international version of BuddyFuse has been released. BuddyFuse, is a free extension for Windows Live Messenger, which seamlessly integrates chat and social networks into the world’s most widely used instant messaging client. BuddyFuse currently enhances Windows Live Messenger by adding support for Google Talk, Twitter and the Dutch social network Hyves.
With BuddyFuse you can currently add functionality from Google, Twitter and Hyves to Windows Live Messenger.
After adding your Google account:
– Google chat contacts will be added to the Windows Live Messenger contact list. As expected, you can chat with them when they’re online just like with your normal Messenger buddies.
– Google contacts will show their Google Talk status message as Messenger personal status message, and their Google profile picture is shown as their display picture in Messenger.
– Your Messenger status is used as status on Google Talk. So if you are online on Messenger, you will also be online on Google Talk.
– You receive notifications (alerts) for new emails in your Google Account (Gmail)
When you add Twitter to BuddyFuse, all your personal status messages (the text next to your display name) will automatically be posted to Twitter.
Support for more services such as AIM, ICQ and Facebook is planned for future releases.
