Msg may refer to any of the following:
1. Shorthand for message, msg is commonly used in chat rooms for users who want to talk privately. Msg is also used in IRC (Internet Relay Chat) as a command to send messages privately to other users connected to IRC. Below is an example of how this command could be used.
/msg computerhope Hello, how are you?
In the command above, "Hello, how are you?" would be sent to the computerhope user. Most IRC programs also open a new chat window with the user you sent a message to continue the conversation.
2. With the Windows command line, msg is a command that lets you send messages to other computers on a network.
