Microsoft's new messaging software for Yahoo and AOL
Singapore | July 17, 2004 5:02:53 PM IST
Microsoft is planning to introduce a new software that will allow users to send and receive messages from the instant messaging systems of Yahoo, America Online (AOL) and Microsoft, regardless of which brand the user is running.he option, which was only possible with other instant messaging products like Trillian, will now be available with Microsoft's Live Communications Server 2005, due out at the end of the year.

According to The Straits Times, the three companies have been trying for years to make their instant messaging systems work together.

The product will also facilitate availability of extra licences to business houses, so that their employees can send and receive messages from the three instant messaging entities.

According to the General Manager of Microsoft, Taylor Collyer, price of the product has not been decided yet.

Although, most of the consumers have been using free instant messaging products till now, but the companies believe that the product will find substantial use in the corporate world, as more companies will begin buying business versions of the free products that include things like increased security and archiving systems.

Last month Yahoo had scrapped its fee-based instant messenger for businesses, saying that the company had decided to focus on getting corporate business from partnerships like the one with Microsoft and AOL. (ANI)
