Microsoft has been hard at work attempting to expand its messaging services beyond the desktop and its own online properties. With projects such as the Messenger Web Toolkit, Windows Live Messenger was made available to third-party developers for integration into their websites, blogs, etc. With the advent of Windows Live Wave 4
, Microsoft is taking “Messenger across the Internet” to a whole-new level. The Redmond company announced Messenger Connect, delivering a new way for both partners and developers to connect with Messenger across the web.
"Messenger Connect allows web, Windows and mobile app developers to create compelling social experiences on their websites and apps by providing them with social promotion and distribution via Messenger,” Ori Amiga
, principal program manager partner program for Windows Live, revealed.
