Microsoft Is Killing Windows Live Messenger In Favor of Skype
In a recent report by The Verge, Microsoft is set to retire Windows Live Messenger in all countries (except mainland China) starting in early 2013. The software giant will migrate over 100 million Windows Messenger accounts to Skype as part of the discontinuation.
As of right now, Microsoft is encouraging users to download the latest version of Skype that supports Microsoft accounts, where users can integrate Skype and Messenger accounts into a single Microsoft account.
All of this comes a little over a year after the acquisition of Skype by Microsoft. What do you think of this transition? Does it make sense? Do you still use Windows Live Messenger?
