Have you been looking for AIM Chat? Your favorite chat rooms were removed earlier this fall from AOL.com, AIM.com and AIM IM clients because of a drop in chat users, according to AOL. But, you can still find AOL Chat online using the AOL Desktop 9.6 application.
But, hurry! With AIM Chat missing from AOL Desktop 10.1, it appears these chats will only stick around awhile longer.
The New Way to Use AIM Chat
In order to use AIM Chat, you will need to download AOL Desktop or launch your copy on your PC or Mac. AOL Desktop does not require a subscription when you bring your own Internet connection, and users can sign in easily with their own AIM screenname and password.
Step 1: Launch AOL Desktop and then select Community > Chat Room Listings to explore the AIM Chat directory.
Step 2: Browse through the 30 AIM Chat categories and select your desired chat room by double-clicking its title. Don't forget to scan the user-created AIM chat rooms, too, for more possibilities.
Step 3: Once your AIM chat room loads,you are ready to use AIM Chat. Use the text field and your text options to personalize the experience inside chat!
