AOL has updated its longstanding AIM instant messaging service and rolled out a preview for the public. The new AIM automatically displays photos, videos and tweets even when users are writing or reading IMs. It also has a chat feature and syncs messages onto all a user's devices. AIM is available in versions for the Web, Windows PCs and Macs, as well as Android and iOS mobile devices. AIM is huge both in corporate America and among consumers, Chris Wetherell, head of AIM products, told TechNewsWorld.
