Microsoft has released the new beta version of Windows Live Essentials for public beta testing. Windows Live Essentials comes with lots of new features in Windows Live Messenger, Live Mail, Live Writer, Windows Live Sync, Photo Gallery and Skydrive. The new beta requires Windows Vista or Windows 7 for installation. You can download the beta version from here. We have already covered some of the features of the new version on this blog.
The new betas of Windows Live Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, Mail, Writer, and Messenger connect to photo and video sharing (SkyDrive, Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, SmugMug), social networking (Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin), email (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail), blogging (Spaces, WordPress, Blogger), and document productivity (Office Web Apps) services. And the new Windows Live Sync keeps your files synchronized across multiple PCs and in the cloud. You can even directly access your PC over the web with Sync’s new remote desktop feature.
