Written under: Technology

Microsoft has just released the Windows Live Essentials 2011 and is now available for download for Windows 7 and Vista users. Unfortunately, the Windows Live Essentials 2011 is not compatible for Windows XP.

The software suite has added a variety of applications for photo sharing, blogging, e-mail and document productivity. It also has updated versions of Messenger, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker and Mail.

One of the new features included in the Windows Live Essentials 2011 are “Family Safety” parental controls and Windows Live Mesh. The latter will allow users to access and synchronize files on different computers.

The Windows Live Photo Gallery can now let users share photos on SkyDrive, Flickr, SmugMug, Facebook and similar services and has also incorporated new facial recognition technology that allows the program to tag people in photos.

Microsoft originally rolled out its Windows Live Essentials beta June 24. For the complete features of the suite and to download it online, you can visit the official Windows Live Essentials 2011 page here.
