BetaNews reports Microsoft will start a wider beta test of Windows Live Messenger this week.
Beta versions of Windows Live Messenger have already begun surfacing on the Web, but Microsoft has learned from past leaks and is restricting login access to those who are registered for the program. Later this month, the beta will expand as users are granted invites to send out.

"It's as fun and reliable as the Messenger you already know, and you lets you keep the contact list and other personal stuff you've got stored in Messenger. Plus, this new version has a fresh new look and feel, and lets you do things you've never done with Messenger before," Microsoft wrote in an e-mail to testers.
Some new features of Windows Live Messenger are international PC-to-telephone VoIP calls and Sharing Folders, some sort of drop boxes for sending files to users that actually store the data on a Microsoft server. More info over here.
