Published on .

London--Reuters Group plc Monday launched a new instant messaging service, which it is giving away to clients. The new product, which has been under development for almost two years, is intended to rival the messaging service of Bloomberg LP. Developed in conjunction with Microsoft Corp., the messaging service uses an open-technology standard to enable customers to communicate in real time using text messages. The next stage would be to incorporate real-time audio and video communications into the service, said Reuters CEO Tom Glocer.
