The Nokia N900 is a communication powerhouse, with the Conversations native app you can pretty much talk to everyone you know through different services like: AIM, Yahoo, Facebook, Google Chat, Skype, Ovi and much more. But some of this services don’t come by default with the N900, I remember setting the services up and just 3 or 4 were available. I remember that MSN wasn’t one of those, so I started searching for a way to add more services to the N900’s Conversations app.
There is an app called ”Extra Protocols Plugin” that adds multiple services to the N900 Conversations app, for example: Facebook, AIM, GTalk, MSN, Group Wise, ICQ, Gadu Gadu, QQ, SIP, Salut, Sametime and Yahoo. The N900’s Conversation app is amazing after you install this plugin.
To install the plugin, first add the Extras-Testing Maemo Repository to the N900’s App Manager. Just open App Manager and ”Application Manager” on top, then Application Catalogs, ”New.” All you have to do is enter the settings on the screenshot below.
After that just install the ”Extra protocol plugins for Conversations and Contacts” app. You can now go to Conversations and add more services to it!
