Facebook chat in Hotmail now available everywhere
We had earlier seen "How to chat with your Facebook friends from Windows Live Messenger"
Chat with your Facebook friends from Windows Live Messenger | The Windows Club
and "Facebook Chat now available on Messenger in India, Canada and other countries"
Facebook Chat now available on Messenger in India, Canada and other countries | The Windows Club
Now this opton has been made available everywhere worldwide, wherever Facebook is available.
Group Program Manager, Hotmail - Dick Craddock posts - " .....while Gmail beat us to bringing their own chat into the inbox, we have now gone
a step further and brought both our own chat and Facebook chat into your inbox.
Starting now, we will be displaying notifications of this update in Hotmail. .."
To try it out, first connect your Facebook account to
Windows Live and make sure the “Chat with my Facebook friends in Messenger” box
is checked to give your consent to Facebook. We’ll link your accounts (this may
take a few minutes), and you can start a chat from Hotmail just by clicking on the
name of a Facebook contact. If this doesn’t work right away, sign out and back
in again, and you should be good to go.
