The client was first released as MSN Messenger on July 22, 1999, and was marketed under the MSN branding until 2005 when it was rebranded under Windows Live and has since been officially known by its present name, although its previous name was still used colloquially by most of its users.Although Microsoft have said that Messenger has been discontinued starting March of 2013, it is widely believed that the Messenger service itself won’t be completely switched off until around spring 2014.So if you’re a lover of Messenger and don’t care much for Skype, you still potentially have up until that time to continue using the Messenger service.
