According to the Windows Live Team, the initial facebook chat from Windows Live will be available for  US, UK, France, Brazil, Germany, and Russia today and the rest of world will be getting it in the coming days. Not sure if its completely true because I’m living in Sri Lanka yet I am already using this feature.



To enable Facebook Chat Integration, follow the below steps.

  • Allow Permission for Facebook adding.
  • Then you will be able to see your facebook friends on your Windows Live Messenger.

  1. If you don’t live in one of the above countries, you’ll have to change your Live account info (in like 5 different places) to say you’re from an admitted country. Then it’ll allow you to connect.
