Stay tuned! We're working hard to bring you a brand new AIM Chat experience! Until then, please read on for other options to keep you connected.

Can I access Chat another way?

You can still access the chat feature within AOL Desktop 9.7 for Windows. If you don't already have it installed, AOL Desktop 9.7 is available at Use Keyword: 'Chat Room Listings' to connect to a chat room.

Unfortunately, AOL Desktop for Mac does not support the chat feature.

Blast feature in AIM

You can use AIM's "AIM Blast" feature to create a chat group in AIM. Just visit, create a group and add your friends!

We hope these options accommodate your needs for the time being! Just wait, great new products in the instant-messaging realm are just around the corner.
