update America Online said it would allow its next version of AOL Instant Messenger to communicate with ICQ, a surprise move that will topple the long-standing barrier between the company's two popular IM services.

The ability to communicate with ICQ is a feature in AIM 5.1, a test version of the software currently available on AOL.com. People who download AIM 5.1 will be able to add ICQ users to their buddy lists and send them instant text messages. AIM users will also be able to convert ICQ identities, which are typically a sequence of numbers, to nicknames.

Users of the current version of ICQ cannot add AIM members to their buddy lists, but future versions of ICQ may let them do so, AOL said.

No you haven't.

You can log onto both services and communicate with people from ICQ and AIM at the same time, buy you can't just log onto AIM and talk to people on ICQ.

Trillian sucks because it can't do as well for any program what the real ones can. It's a jack of all trades, master of none. You don't have access to all of the MSN emoticons for example. Or all of the ICQ ones. And emoticons run my life. Without them I am nothing.
