Yahoo, Microsoft IM Integration 'Soon'

Responding to queries on the status of integration with Yahoo Messenger, Microsoft said Monday that it was still working toward integrating the Yahoo network into the Windows Live Messenger client. "I still don't know exactly when you're going to be able to start adding those Yahoo! Buddies to your WL Messenger, but it can't be much longer," Messenger team member Leah posted to the team blog Monday.

The original deal to link the two networks was announced in October of last year. At the time, the companies said that the integration would occur by the second quarter of 2006. According to the blog post, a fully functional version of Windows Live Messenger with the Yahoo network integrated is being tested internally, however final testing has not begun.
