Windows Messenger Beginning Transition To Skype In April



Windows Messenger Beginning Transition To Skype In April

Microsoft has announced that its upgrade from Windows Live Messenger to Skype on Windows desktops will begin in April and take several weeks.

The update will start with English speakers and finish with Brazilian Portuguese users on 30 April or later and in China Messenger will be still available.

Microsoft first announced plans to ditch Messenger in November, but then it appeared that it covered only a test group and other users should wait till April.

Itís considered that upgrading to Skype can help communicate in flexible ways, and be connected on more devices and platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Windows Phone, Android, and soon BlackBerry.

Skype already updated its iOS app in November in order to let users sign on with their Microsoft accounts. It means if you have an MS account youíll automatically transport a userís contact and it allow you to chat with Messenger, Hotmail and Outlook friends.
