Skype Replaced Windows Messenger

Microsoft took a decision to replace its Windows Live Messenger with well-known and popular Skype. According to media reports, Microsoft’s team of developers is currently working towards retiring its Windows Live Messenger software in the coming months and integrating its functions into Skype.

It looks like Microsoft has slowly been moving Skype users over to the Messenger back end within the past several months. If you are one of those who have been using Skype, you should know that over 80% of those instant messages were processed on Microsoft’s back end. Industry observers expected that the software giant will soon announce the retirement of Windows Live Messenger, perhaps even this week.

Since Skype is using P2P protocol, instant messages could only be sent if both parties were online. However, with Skype running on Microsoft’s servers that problem would go away. This is the first advantage. Then, the Messenger was available from any PC, if the user was logged into their Live account through any browser. On the contrary, Skype required a desktop client which caused problems on Mac and Linux due to bad updates or lack of those. This problem will also be solved with Skype moving to Outlook.com – another apparent advantage at hand.

In fact, the move will mean that the two best pieces of the software will merge: while Skype was great at calls, Windows Live Messenger was better at messaging. In the meantime, the biggest challenge was to get Skype to link Microsoft accounts to its login names. For instance, if you are using Skype 6.0 for Mac and Windows, you will now be greeted with options to log in using a Microsoft or Facebook account.

No avatarWindows Live stays that's a promise no more Skype, Skype is better on the mobile device.

This also to do with Windows 8 that's out of order.

If both of these software's merge I will not interested. What I can see is that they trying to do this to make one network.

The last thing that put me off if it share's my Facebook and Windows Live account just to log in to the crappy Skype on PC, they can kiss the toilet sit. Please note if this goes ahead get rid of Skype on your PC plus Windows 8.

Embolism avatarI used to like skype will definitely blank it once Microsoft get their claws into it,bad enough Microsoft fusion centres already monitor users for Big Brother once people on other platforms who use skype get sucked in by Microsoft they may as well do what they do in prisons and have the screws vet their mail first.

Embolism avatarSkype just to be clear is an open source VOLP program and I never had an issue with it on Linux once MS get their claws into it I will be looking for another client free of the spyware all MS programs are associated with and stuff windows 8 yet another O/S formulated from open source ideas and buggered by corporate Microsoft.

card13 avatarSomething all ya'll haven't realized yet is this all went through around Q4 2011/Q1 2012, CISCO tried and failed to stop it in Feb 2012. Also if you haven't noticed it said "If you are one of those who have been using Skype"..."over 80% of those instant messages were processed on Microsoft’s back end." Meaning you should have been looking for a new client a long time ago, I knew about this merger back in March.

Embolism avatarGlad I use Amsn,I will delete skype from my o/s now I know it`s already done and no longer a trusted application as with anything Microsoft.Good thing I haven`t used it since 2010 good to be informed when the insidious corporation sneaks in and aligns itself to open source programs.

eNdEmiOn avatarI never got why MSN got so popular ICQ at the time was by far the better messenger it might still be but no one in the west seems to be using it anymore.

Skype went down the drain when MS got its paws on it.
