Windows Live Gallery joins the rest in the beta family

July 24th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

A new product joining the Windows Live shabang, is Windows Live Gallery. It’s a strange one to try and explain, even though I’ve been in the loop about it for a while now… but it’s certainly changed since I saw a prototype-type-thing.

As Windows Live and Windows Vista (hense the logo’s) are being tied together in this electronic family style scene, this new Gallery which has jumped straight into public beta lets you download and upload content designed for Windows Live services, such as plugins, tools, content and media. You can also use it to download content specifically for your Windows Vista machine such as small applications designed for other parts of your Vista experience.

There will be some changes to other websites which provide such content already, although I’m not allowed to go into detail… but think “Gadgets” for Vista, and now they’re available on Windows Live Gallery… 😉

Customise Windows Live specifically with content and plugins for Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Search Toolbar, Windows Live Desktop Search, and over the coming weeks, more and more related Live services will jump in the loop.

It’s gonna be packed with Live related stuff – if you thought Windows Live was all about downloading an application and using it as it is… woah you better think again 😉
