Has it always been so?

I seem to recall there was an MSN choice in "import contacts" just a few days ago?

Re: How to add msn contacts in skype

Isn't it about time MSN Messenger support was added?

 

It supports both IM text chat and video calls, even text chat would be something.

 

I'd prefer not having to use both Skype and MSN. MSN is still wildly popular, it's especially odd as Skype and MSN are both owned by Microsoft.

 

Seriously, Skype removed Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo but left those junk services in place? Facebook and Outlook are the only two of any relevance left.

 

@ knightDamien: That was to import Hotmail contacts into Skype, not MSN chat but along with Gmail and Yahoo contacts import, it's oddly been removed.

Re: How to add msn contacts in skype

Especially now that Microsoft OWNS Skype - why cant we have MSN contacts in Skype? Come now - get cracking. I dont want to use MSN and Skype and I dont want some silly Trillion thing either.

Re: How to add MSN contacts in skype

Has anybody ever figured this out? Especially in light of the announcement that MSN Chat is going away soon in favor of Skype.

 

TIA, Steve

Re: How to add MSN contacts in skype

The new skype prompts you to "join accounts" I am currently conversing with my MSN contacts.

Re: How to add MSN contacts in skype

Thanks for the info lynch_3001. How did you get prompted to do this. I've never seen a prompt like this, and don't see anything in any of the preferences or menus that looks like a "join accounts" option. I'm running the latest version of Skype (Version 6.0.0.2946) on Mac. Thanks again! Steve
