Did you know you can chat with more than one friend in the same IM? Let’s say you and a group of friends attend an event. You would like to talk to each other but not disturb others. Or perhaps you have something to plan with more than one person or an important matter that needs to be discussed. Whatever the reason, a conference IM with friends can occasionally be handy. Here’s how you do it.
1. Click one of the friends you wish to talk to in your friend window.
2. Hold down the CTRL key and click the name of each friend you would like to include in the conversation.
3. Once all friends are selected click the IM/Call button. The IM should come up. It will be called “Friends Conference.”
Note: People you include in this conference should all be logged in and online for this to work.
