This version includes our new Real-Time IM feature. Please note: To test this feature, you will need to IM with users who are also using AIM 6.8 - so recruit your buddies today!

What is Real-Time IM?

Real-Time IM lets you and your buddy see what the other person is typing in real-time, as it is being typed, right in your IM window. It is like seeing a preview of an IM. Normally, you can't read a message from your buddy until it is sent and appears in the IM window. But with Real-Time IM, you see each letter your buddy is typing in the IM window even before it is sent to you.

How does it work?

Real-Time IM directly connects your PC to your buddy's PC to send and receive information in real-time. This is also called Direct IM connection. AIM recommends that you only accept Direct IM connections from buddies you know.

How do I use it?

To invite a buddy to participate in Real-Time IM, click the Actions menu at the top of the IM window, or at the bottom of the Buddy List® window, and then select Real-Time IM. You may also press Ctrl+R on your keyboard to initiate Real-Time IM. Once your buddy accepts the invitation, both of you can begin to send and receive IMs in real-time.
