IM+ 6.2 for Android is now in beta with a black theme.

There’s a new beta in town and it comes from Shape Services, makers of the ever popular IM+. IM+ is an all in one messaging app that lets you chat with your friends using Facebook, Skype, MSN/Live Messenger, Google Talk, Yahoo!, AIM/iChat, ICQ, MySpace, RenRen, Jabber, VKontakte, Odnoklassniki.Ru, Yandex IM and Mail.Ru Agent. They just released version 6.2 with a black theme, which brings a lot of changes from user feedback. They would love for you to try it out and let them know what you think. Keep in mind it’s in beta. Hit the break for the full change log and download link:

  • New black theme saves battery on devices with AMOLED screens
  • “Favorites” section for contacts: displays selected contacts on top of contact list
  • Notification when selected contact goes online
  • Option to expand/collapse groups in contact list
  • Option to deliver only the first message from a conversation with Push notification
  • IM+ is now able to automatically import and configure accounts which are already configured in Android OS settings
  • Save your chat history in a file on your SD card
  • Retrieving of Skype message history is now optional
  • Notifications about new emails
  • Typing notifications can be disabled to save data traffic and battery life
  • Configurable WiFi sleep policy
  • Option to call Skype contact directly from chat menu
  • Option to hide ICQ contacts with “On Mobile” status
  • Thai, Czech, and Polish localizations

For whatever the reason the site calls it version 6.1.8 and in the app on the about page it also refers to it as 6.1.8, but when you tap “what’s new” it refers to it as 6.2. Go ahead and hit the source link to download.
