If you have tried to use Windows Live Messenger recently, you might have noticed that it will only display message to
update it after you try to sign in by using your Windows Live Messenger ID and Password. I tried it again and again to update it but I was not successful so I thought that there must be some problem with the update mechanism but it turned out that now Windows Live Messenger will be discontinued from Microsoft and Skype will take its place. You can now use Skype to talk to friends and family who were on Windows Live Messenger before. The shift is going to happen gradually but Skype can be used to sign in by using your Windows Live Messenger account details. Here is how to merge Windows Live Messenger and Skype.
