Microsoft Research Updates Xim, Rolls It Out to Windows Phone Users Worldwide

Xim the cool new photo sharing app from Microsoft Research, has just been updated on Windows Phone, expanding the photo sharing application in a big way.

Xim can now be downloaded by anyone worldwide, expanding from its US-only availability that began earlier this month. There’s also a new voice verification feature (in addition to SMS) and some bug fixes.

Some things to remember about Microsoft Xim:

  • Xims swipe and zoom together, so everyone stays in sync automatically – it’s fun too
  • Only one person needs to have Xim installed in order for everyone to participate
  • Invite people from your phone’s contact list, via email or via phone number
  • Choose photos from your camera roll, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, or OneDrive; mix and match easily from any of these sources
  • When your friend gets the Xim app the fun really starts – they can add photos or people to the Xim and easily extend the conversation
  • Xims only stick around for a little while so you can enjoy the moment with no storage or organization overhead
  • Long press on a photo you like for additional options such as save photo

Xim can be downloaded via the QR code above. Have you used Xim yet?
