How do I share a file with AIM for Mac?

We've made sharing files with your friends and family much easier. 


  • Maximum file size cannot exceed 30 MB
  • You can only upload 1 GB in total files during a conversation session
  • Files expire in 100 hours; they won't appear within a conversation past that time period
  • You can now send PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, sound files, images, and others

To share a file with a buddy, follow the instructions below:

1. Open a chat with a buddy.

2. Click on the paperclip icon in the bottom left corner of the chat window.

3. Select the file that you want to send.

4. Click Open. Your file will then be sent to all participants in the chat.
