Download AOL Instant Messenger

It's here: email, IM, text, voice at the click of a button. Now you can look your buddies in the eye, hear their voices or take them with you everywhere you go.


Instant Messaging
Now there's room in your Buddy List® feature for 500 of your closest friends. Organize your chats with tabbed IMs, and stay in touch with the Universal Address Book.

AIM® Mail is a mere click away from the Instant Messenger™ service. With 2GBs of storage, a handy "Unsend" button and industry-leading spam and virus protection, AIM Mail is the only email you need.

Text Messaging
Now you can access your Buddy List® feature on your mobile device to send and receive IMs. You can also send IMs from your computer to your buddies' cell phones.

Voice Chat
Use AIM Talk® to go from typing to talking with anyone on your Buddy List® feature. No equipment installation required. All that's needed is a computer with speakers and a microphone. A headset or USB phone and high-speed connection are recommended, but optional.
