2014 - Microsoft kills MSN Messenger for Skype. Beware Paltalk
Microsoft is officially killing its 15-year-old instant messaging program Windows Live Messenger (formerly MSN Messenger). Microsoft announced it would be closing Windows Live and pushing users over to Skype in 2012, but the service had stuck around in China — until now. MSN Messenger first launched in 1999 as Microsoft's answer to the then-popular AOL Instant Messenger. Like so many messaging apps before and since, it started off simple, with basic IM functionality — but soon expanded with new features such as photo messaging, screen-sharing, voice and video chatting.
