Small but useful update in MSN Messenger 6.2

Recently released with little fanfare is a minor update to MSN Messenger. One of the first changes I noticed which I find useful is if you sort your contacts by Online/Offline status there are now three states.

  • Green – Online
  • Amber – Available in on a mobile device
  • Red – Offline

It makes it easier to distinguish between those who are completely offline and those who can be “pinged” on a mobile device.
