ICQ 6 Preview!



The long awaited ICQ 6 Preview is coming!


As always, the new preview is limited to a small amount of users. In past, the limit has been set to 30.000. According to the ICQ 6 Preview page, this time you need to apply for an invitation and this time there are only about 800 (daily) to give out, so it's a very closed cycle now.





A lot of people and ICQ/IM news sites complained that ICQ does not move forward, no new developments, and they called it dead. However, by tradition, the ICQ Team releases a new version every year and releases an alpha client for user testing by the end of the year. They are late this year but I am glad that their traditions won't be broken!



Next to the usual testers forum, they have started an ICQ 6 Blog in which the ICQ Team writes about ICQ 6 and its proccess! And they even reveal some new features.

I have compiled a blog post about the features they promised earlier to include. So you might like to check it out!

hay could you perhaps ask a friend to invite me?

Nafcom said...

@ili-in:

over 30 people already asked me, but preview testers only have one.
There has been an public invitation sign up for over 2 weeks, which you have missed, that is pretty much bad luck.
I cannot ask a friend either since they already also used up their invitations!

As you can see on the preview site, the preview is buggy, incomplete and only for testing anyway, not for permanent use

I am sorry.
