As announced last November, Microsoft has been planning to discontinue WLM in 2013, moving all users over to Skype sometime in Q1 of this year. The company emailed more than 100 million users to announce that the software will retire on March 15, after which users must use Skype.
Oh i miss the old days already, technology is moving and changing so fast, now here is another thing we will be talking about with our kids in the near future 😀
حذرت شركة مايكروسوفت من أنها ستوقف برنامج ويندوز لايف مسنجر بشكل نهائي في مارس القادم، وأشارت الشركة إلى أن خدمة مسنجر ستتوقف في كافة أنحاء العالم، وحثت مايكروسوفت المستخدمين الحاليين للإنتقال إلى برنامج سكايب للرسائل ومحادثات الفيديو حيث قامت بتحسينه مؤخرًا ليدعم تسجيل الدخول بحسابات ويندوز لايف مسنجر.
Microsoft has launched the new Outlook.com, which replaces the famous Hotmail webmail service. The new website makes emailing more easy and also offers users to switch from their current @hotmail.com email addresses to @outlook.com addresses.
Microsoft is trying to take on Google’s extremely popular Gmail. The new email service comes with “virtually unlimited” storage and integrates Skype, the popular video chat service that Microsoft bought last year.
The more these companies fight to get on top throne, the more we the users get benefits. 😀
The free calling application Viber hits BlackBerry, Windows Phone (but without the free calling), the company that it is challenging Skype and a plethora of cross-platform communication app makers with its free calling, texting and photo sharing application for mobile phones, is doubling the number of platforms it supports.
I like Viber because it is very stable and very similar to Skype in quality of calls but still we need something different than just having the same options in every other application. lets just hope we see something different in the next update.
