What is ICQ New? The comeback of the messaging legend


More than 20 years ago, when the Internet already existed but was still far from what it is today, ICQ dominated the world of instant messaging. In the meantime, the former market leader is back on the stage.

Veterans remember: ICQ shaped internet culture at the turn of the millennium.

Not least because of the current situation around WhatsApp, more and more users are looking for alternatives. The new ICQ comes in handy.

Newer, better, more extensive: this is ICQ New

The service has now been re-launched under the name ICQ New. This naming fulfills its purpose, as the same principle is used, but in a fresh guise:

ICQ New is available as a mobile app and in a Windows version for the desktop. The latter is not surprising, since the good old days of ICQ only took place on the PC – after all, smartphones didn’t even exist yet. Those who still know their login data from back then can use them to log into the new ICQ and see old chats. For this reason alone, the service should be of interest to many people.
