The interface of ICQ has changed a lot during the years, but some of the features remain the same. The list of contacts is still situated like in the older versions of ICQ. The same goes for the status menu, which is again at the bottom of the main window. The main change of the interface is in the pane situated in the left part of the main window. There you have suggestions that offer you people that you might know, based on common friends. The other suggestion is about products offered by ICQ LLC, like Mobile ICQ for your mobile phone or free call options that can be used by ICQ. The program offers some useful features, like the option to connect to social media. You can link the app with Facebook, Google Talk, Google Mail, Yahoo and Odnoklassniki. This is helpful, because in this way you can build the list of your friends and contacts through other websites for social interaction. The interaction is helped by the fact that you can use this program in a lot of languages and that makes it multilingual.

Basic Operations

ICQ works by giving everyone that registers a UNI which is short for Unified Identification Number. They start from 10000 and when you sign for the service you are given one too. These numbers remain linked to your email. You can always get back your UNI if you have left the program unused for a lot of time. For example, it was quite a pleasure to see that an account that I had created several years ago was still active and I could use it again. All the contacts were still there, but most of them didn’t use the program as they had moved to other instant messaging programs. Still, this is nothing to wonder about because the account is at least 7 years old.


ICQ is a classic program that deserves your attention, even though lately it has fallen a bit below the radar. Because it has been developed for a long time you can count on a lot of features that define the instant messaging programs. This is an app that can connect with a lot of social media web sites and it is also able to use different communication methods, like chatting, video calls, and SMS. All of this makes ICQ quite an amazing program and it surely can become the most popular app in the world once again.
