    Windows Live Messenger is going to discontinued in March

    Microsoft is planning to discontinue Windows live messenger from March 2013. Iím not sure whether this is a final news or a rumor. But Iíve seen on many websites that Microsoft is going to turn off or it is going to discontinue Windows live messenger. Iím actually not surprised. Windows live messenger is not so widely used and due to which it looked Microsoft has taken a step to discontinue it permanently. But till now there is no official confirmation provided on it.




    Can anyone put some light on this?

    I had also seen the same news. Iím using Windows live messenger from longtime and somehow be a bit problem when Microsoft will discontinue the same without notifying to anyone. Iím sure Microsoft will publicly announce whether theyíre going to continue Windows live messenger or not.

    It is correct that Windows live messenger is not at all popular compared to Yahoo messenger or Skype. They must either integrate the account of live messenger into some new messenger application on with some existing.

    It is not possible. It is the messenger that Microsoft provided by default in all Windows system. And there may be a part of population which is still using it. I had not yet seen any related information that Microsoft is really going to discontinue Windows live messenger or release something new in place of it.

    Is there any final confirmation or can anyone put on highlight on this news. I think these guys misguiding many people.

    It is absolutely correct that Microsoft is going to discontinue Windows live messenger service in March. The exact date in news website was mentioned March 15, 2013. And for your kind information Windows live messenger is going to discontinue and it place will be taken by Skype. So Microsoft is not just feeling a messenger but it is going to replace it with Skype. We can hope for some of the best feature added by Microsoft in Skype and integrated option of Windows live messenger.

    All the data on user profile available in Windows live messenger messenger will also be provided for Skype. So it simply means that you can login with Microsoft account as you do in Windows live messenger. On your contacts and other information will be same as it was before.

    So this is nothing much to worry Microsoft business replacing the existing messenger with Skype.
