Microsoft discontinues Facebook, Google chat in Outlook.com

Today, in an email to Outlook.com customers, Microsoft announced that it will be discontinuing support for Facebook Chat and Google Chat on the service.

The company blames the Google Chat removal on Google changing its chat protocol but doesn’t mention why it’s removing Facebook support.

Going forward, the only chat service available in Outlook.com will now be Skype.

One of Outlook’s big drawcards was integrating all these separate chat services into one stream, so it’s disappointing Microsoft wasn’t able to keep it going.
