Apple Releases Public Beta of New Messages App for Mac

Posted on February 16, 2012 by

One of the new features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion announced today is an app called Messages. Messages replaces iChat and allows you to send unlimited messages, high-quality photos and videos directly from your Mac to another Mac or iOS device, it’s basically iMessage for Mac. I’ve already tried it out some, and it’s awesome!

Lion users can download a beta of Messages from Apple’s website, and the final version will be included with Mountain Lion sometime late summer 2012.

Messages will continue to support AIM, Jabber, Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk.
