Only OS X Mountain Lion Will Have the New Messages App

Illustration for article titled Only OS X Mountain Lion Will Have the New Messages App

You can try out the beta for the new Messages app that'll be in OS X Mountain Lion right now, but once the release rolls around, you'll have to install Mountain Lion to use the full version.

That's totally reasonable. It just stinks if you're one of the unfortunate few who can use the beta on OS X Lion, but will get left behind because your Mac isn't compatible with Mountain Lion. [Consomac via Macrumors via Cult of Mac]

I don't remember how people felt when Boot Camp was released as beta software, because it was offered on Tiger machines, but then expired and became a Leopard-only application. Compared to that, an IM client ain't shit.
