Windows Live Messenger has many features missing and those using Skype might just be well aware of it. Arguments aside, Skype has fast become popular tool for chatting over Internet. It supports many plugins which make chatting and messaging a fun and lovable experience. Messenger Plus! is one amongst them.
Record Skype video calls
Messenger Plus! For Skype is free plug-in/add-on that adds several missing features and useful extras to the Skype software. The free plug-in includes a Toolbar interface, call recording feature, animations and a chat log viewer.
Slick Toolbar Interface
The toolbar resides to the left side of the Skype window and allows quick access to desired features.
This feature automatically starts recording calls (audio/video) of unlimited duration with the choice of 3 recording quality levels. Besides, you can track conversations and replay or upload them to your blog as podcasts.
It allows adding animations and winks to Skype, thereby enriching your chat experience. You can send flash video animation (winks) to your friends, family and co-workers but make sure you have Flash player installed for this. More than 35 animations can be previewed in a window before sending them to anyone.
Chat Log Viewer
If you use Skype regularly for chatting you might have observed that Skype displays all messages on a single page. This looks quite messy with no proper sorting available, especially by date. Chat Log Viewer solves this problem. It keeps track of your chats and displays them in a simple interface.
With Chat Log Viewer at hand, you simply have to choose a specific month, day or user to find a message you are looking for. It then allows you to search, preview and print any conversation, or export them into text, html, csv or xml files.
In addition to above all, you can visit plugin’s options page to fine-tune settings.
