The geeks behind the multi-chat service app imo have announced a new update for the app that is now available to download. The update adds some interesting new features to the app. If you aren’t familiar with imo for Android the app allows you to take all those IM apps that you use to chat with people and combines them into one place. The app supports Skype, GTalk, MSN, ICQ/AIM, Yahoo, Jabber, Vk.com, Hyves, Myspace, Facebook, Google Talk, and Jabber.
The new update brings some interesting features with a new easier to use UI. The chat history is now viewable and searchable from inside the app. You can also have chat groups set up. The chat groups will work with people on different devices included from the web, Android phones, the iPad, and Blackberry devices.
The group chats also allow for photo sharing and a bunch of bugs are fixed as well in this update. The update landed yesterday and is up for download right now. The current versions is 2.2.7 and you need a device running Android 1.6 or higher.
