With the new Facebook chat integration into its email system, Hotmail users worldwide can now chat with their Facebook friends right from their inbox. The feature, which allows logged-in users on Hotmail and Facebook to communicate with each other, is looked by Hotmail as being a step ahead of its competitor, Gmail, which pioneered and still has its own and AOL’s chat interface within the inbox.

The integration was introduced last year in US and a few other countries, but is now available anywhere in the world wherever both Facebook and Hotmail can be used and is expected to attract many more people to the Microsoft-owned email system.
