Once the World Wide Web started expanding and became available in nearly any environment, communication methods started flourishing. Besides some of the most popular IM applications that are still used today, others developed to offer either what the others lacked or help a larger variety of people connect. QQ International is one of them, promising to enhance the way you chat online.
Quick and easy installation process
Everything about QQ International is rather unique in style, even the setup package it comes in being personalized. It's clean, fresh and if you ever used an IM application you find no problems whatsoever in getting acquainted with what is put at your disposal.
Fully customizable and friendly interface
The application can be fully customized to suit virtually any desktop. Besides the rich theme content it comes equipped with, you have a built-in tool that enables you to drag the main window over a selected picture to crop out a custom skin.
What's more, the main window can easily be resized or dragged anywhere the desktop, and it can easily attach itself to one of the borders and automatically slides away until needed. Otherwise, you can choose to leave it hidden in the system tray.
Create multiple social groups
Just like any other application of its kind, you can populate the contacts list with friends using the same protocol to chat online. Unfortunately, it does not let you connect with other IM accounts or get in tough with people that do and nor can you connect with a social network account.
Contacts can be stored in groups and there are even a few created by default, such as friends, acquaintances, family, classmates or even strangers. In addition, you can join groups or discussions that are basically closed circles of people that come and go to chat.
A rich settings menu
The application features an incredibly rich settings menu that lets you manage nearly everything, from sign-in options, status messages, hotkeys, sound to updates, file management, language and even a translator. Furthermore, you can set the application to launch on startup and automatically connect to your account, or handle various privacy settings.
To end with
All in all, QQ International is a pretty IM application that is not entirely different from others of its kind. However, it isolates itself because of incompatibility with other popular communication methods, but if you have friends or business associates that use this protocol, it most surely won't disappoint you.
