Messenger to officially retire on 15th March 2013
« on: January 19, 2013, 07:25:10 PM »
Skype has been updated, to replace Windows Messenger and that Microsoft was phasing out Messenger in the first quarter of 2013 in all regions, except mainland China.

The date has now been announced officially announced by Microsoft. Windows Live Messenger will shut down  on 15th March 2013 and all the existing Messenger services will be retired officially. The Messenger Team has already started sending mails regarding the same to Messenger users.

So, what’s happening between now and 15th March?

Messenger will continue to work as you know it today. If you are signed in with Messenger on your desktop, you will see a banner notification to upgrade. When you click on the banner, an installer window will open with the request to upgrade. This will take you through our installer flow to install Skype and automatically uninstall Messenger.

Yes! Skype is available on iPhone, Android and soon on Windows Phone 8. We encourage you to download the latest Skype app on your mobile and then uninstall Messenger. You will be able to sign in to Skype on your iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 8 mobile apps with your Microsoft Account over the next few weeks. If you use another phone with Messenger on it, it will continue to work for a while.
