End of the road for MSN Messenger

  • Windows Live Messenger, which was earlier and more popularly known as MSN Messenger, will have a quiet burial in China in October, marking the end of a service that a generation of youngsters used as an important tool for communication.

    For most users around the world, the service ended last year — after Microsoft bought Skype for $8.5bn in 2012. 

    Chinese users continued to use the older service, but even they will switch to Skype before the end of October.
