Microsoft Boots Google and Facebook in Favor of Skype

February 25th, 2015

Microsoft is pushing Google Chat and Facebook Chat out of Outlook.com. Not surprisingly, it is urging those that need a chat application in Outlook.com to look to its own option, Skype.

In a statement emailed to Outlook.com users this morning, Microsoft explained that it had made the decision because of Google’s decision to discontinue using the the chat protocol XMPP.
