A guided tour of the new Windows Live Today

 

Posted by Dom

 

Thanks for all your feedback, both good and bad, on the new-look MSN UK homepage. Some of the constructive criticism we received will enable us to tailor the page even closer to your needs over the next few weeks.

 

Many of you who’ve been getting used to our new look, and telling us what you love and loathe, will also have noticed that, as of Tuesday this week, our Windows Live Today feature has been given a major redesign.

 

The Windows Live Today pane opens up for all users of Windows Live Messenger, our popular Instant Messaging tool. In the past, it was restricted to just promoting seven of the best articles on our site, as well as allowing you to read the latest headlines and access your e-mail.

 

The new look, however, lets us showcase the very best that MSN has to offer to much better effect. The main ‘Today’ tab, which opens up as soon as you log in to Messenger, now has a large image showing off some of the premium content from around our channels; yesterday it highlighted an article describing 20 ways to impress your boss, whilst today we’re pointing you in the direction of the hot new video for Kylie Minogue’s comeback single, Two Hearts.

 

Major other content areas on the front page of Windows Live Today include ‘What’s Hot’, ‘Editor’s Choice’ and ‘Today’s Picks’. These sections allow us to more effectively highlight the vast range of articles, quizzes, videos, blogs and maps that flood into our site every day.

 

Windows Spaces, Messenger games and new emoticons are all within easy reach on the right-hand side of the main window.

 

And this front page showcase is by no means all that’s on offer for you in your new Today page. You can now fully customise your experience so you have as little, or as much, content from other areas of our site as you like. Joining the intro page are now separate Hotmail, Celebrity, Video, Music, Fun, Tech and News tabs, giving you a massive range of top stories and links from all around our different channels.

 

Want the latest news and technology info, but not bothered about the rest? Then just click on ‘Add More’ in the top-right of the pane, and use the ‘Add’ and ‘Remove’ buttons to select the content that YOU want to see every time you log into Messenger.

 

And that’s about it, aside from mentioning that, of course, our powerful search engine function is at the top of every pane you open, allowing you to hunt for the web links, news items, images or maps that you require. You can even edit the selected city in the top-left of the window to get the weather for wherever you are in the world.

 

Now it’s up to you to tell us what you think. Have we gone too far, or not far enough? Is it easy enough to get to the content that you want? Send us your thoughts via the ‘Add a comment’ link below or on email; all your comments will be read and considered by the designers and writers here.
