Microsoft Messenger Diccontinued. Hello Skype!

Its been a long time coming! Ever since Redmond bought Skype, we've been waiting for the announcement that brings the death knell for Microsoft messenger. That time has finally come. Starting March 15, Windows Live Messenger (previously MSN Messenger) will be no more. Instead, all your Messenger contacts will be migrated to Skype, whether you’re already using it or not.

This comes into effect worldwide, except mainland China, where Messenger will continue to be available. Starting Tuesday last, Microsoft has began informing all its users of the upcoming change in an official email bearing the subject “Important info about your Messenger account”.

The email details everything you need to know about the move to Skype.

You've got exactly two months to say goodbye to Messenger and move over to Skype to keep your chats going. To migrate your account to Skype, all you have to do is download the latest version and sign in using your Microsoft account.

If you already have a Skype account, you’ll get the option to merge the two accounts. If you don’t, you’ll simply find all your old Messenger contacts in Skype.
