Facebook Chat comes to Windows Live Messenger

Now, I try not to bore you too often with posts about work, but every so often we do something I can’t help but brag about.  Today was one of those days.

Around noon Pacific, we released an update to the Windows Live Messenger beta adding Facebook chat.  Now you can IM your Facebook friends from inside Messenger.  All you have to do is connect Facebook to Windows Live, fire up the Messenger beta, and chat away.  Facebook Chat in Messenger is starting out in 6 regions (Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, the UK, and the US).

Here’s what it looks like:

Chat joins the Messenger social view updates from May to make Messenger a great way to keep up with what’s going on in Facebook.  Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
