Hotmail is getting wonderful with new features . I was mainly using gmail due to the availability of free space and easy way to chat with my friends. (That was enough for me as a common man).But recently I started like hotmail too with some of the new features recently implemented on this.
Step 1: Sign in to Messenger
In the left pane of the Hotmail screen, click Sign in to Messenger. (If you see the Search contacts box, then you’re already signed in.)
Step 2: Start a chat
Look at the left pane to see your Messenger contact list. Point your mouse at a contact to see that person’s status, and then click to send an instant message. You can even have two or more chats at the same time—just click another contact to open a new conversation tab.
