AOL 7.0 is coming later this year
AOL plans to release at least the English version of its new software this year. According to AOL, the new version 7.0 is primarily characterized by its new interface, more features for broadband Internet and the respective regional offers for users.
The services already available in the current version, such as mail client, buddy list and instant messaging, are to be improved again in the new version and the aim is to better integrate online music come. Version 7.0 also has the picture software 'You´ve got pictures'. Unfortunately, it is not yet known when the new version will be available for all German customers. About 30 million people currently use AOL's services, and of these, 24 million are in the United States. AOL was able to double the number of customers within two and a half years. AOL boss Barry Schuler sees it as a reflection of the importance of the Internet in daily life today.
