MSN Talk 1.86 Update – Chat History

I’m very happy to announce that MSN Talk now support to save chat history into SD card.

In setting, you can turn off this feature on ‘Chat’ section. If you turn off this feature, MSN Talk will not save any chat histories into your SD card.

You can show each chat history by using ‘View history’ menu on Chat Window. MSN Talk will create a history file into SD card for a one chat session. As a result, it may create multiple history file with a contact.

If you want to clear chat histories with a contact, you can clear all chat history files by using ‘Clear’ menu on the history selecting screen.

Of course, you can delete or copy these history files into other places like your desktop.

In your SD card, all chat history files are located in a directory named msntalk. directory format is as following.


For example, If your email address is ‘foo@bar.com’ and your contact’s email is ‘myfriend@bar.com’, full path of a history file would be


You can freely open these chat history files with your favorite text editor such as notepad.exe on Windows, vim on Linux, TextEdit on Mac OS X. All texts are encoded UTF-8.

Have fun!

    Great app. But I can’t select any avstars as default in your app when I’m chatting with friends on MSN talk.
