Hotmail Integrates Facebook Chat Into Its Inbox

The Microsoft-owned email system now allows its users to seamlessly chat with their Facebook friends.

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.
