Windows 10, the new operating system that Microsoft is planning to release by the end of this year, is going to be integrated with a slew of exciting new features. According to sources close to Microsoft’s help desk, the Windows new operating system will have advanced authentication features. While using Windows 10, users are given the option to sign into both Microsoft digital services and hardware. Another brand new Windows 10 feature is the integration of Windows Hello, a biometric authentication feature.

Windows Hello

According to experts at Windows Live chat support desk, Windows Hello is a brand new security feature installed in Windows 10. It is capable of allowing the users of the OS to login to their computer by using their fingertips, face, or eyes, for authentication. However, the user has to ensure that his PC has got the required hardware features in order to use these features.

The usual computers that you get in the shops do not have the support for taking fingerprints. So this will be an exceptional feature. However, facial detection is possible with all computers that have been integrated with a webcam. Microsoft said that it is currently collaborating with Intel technology to roll out computing devices that meets the requirements for a complete biometric authentication.

Hello features enterprise grade security

Sources close to the Windows Live chat support desk said that the Windows Hello feature is associated with Enterprise-grade security. Consequently, you will be able to sign into your machine without much headache. You can let the PC give you access to the system even by a quick selfie.

Another highlight of the Windows New operating system is the integration of Passport. The integration of this new feature enables users to authenticate digital services. With this new set of tools, users of the OS can access any of their desired applications with ease of use.

When you turn on your Windows 10 OS, it automatically let you access quite a number of Microsoft services. In fact, with a single account, you can decide to manage multiple Microsoft services. It means that you do not have to remember all your passwords to access a service.

Some of the Windows 10 features have already been rolled out. Many other features are yet to unveiled. Microsoft says that it will release brand new features like Cortana and Continuum with the upcoming Windows 10 Consumer Preview.

Windows Server Next Is Real

Windows Live Chat Support

Windows Small Server

There had been rumors flying around that Microsoft is working on a leaner version of the Server OS, and now the company has confirmed that these are true. Microsoft let out a new slide deck teasing the “Nano” version of Windows Server that they’re working on, and apparently this will be oriented towards the cloud. You can almost imagine calls flooding the Windows live chat support number about this.

Microsoft had earlier stated that it had plans in a similar direction. They pointed to this at a conference online, with a video presentation featuring Jeffrey Snover, the person behind Windows Server’s design. This video explains a lot of what the slide deck showed off.

Around the 26:00 mark is when things get really interesting, with Snover showing us the roadmap for Windows Server, affirming rumors that the Redmond giant is looking to come up with a lighter version of Windows Server for the cloud. “We are going to have a cloud-optimised server,” he said. “Windows Server will be deeply refactored for a cloud scenario [with] just the components required to do that and nothing else”.

The new tiny server will have an overhead subset of the one that enterprises have all come to know, and prefer using. This, according to Snover, will be “compatible with what you have today”, but will have two application profiles. Apps will aim for either the older existing APIs, or the more advanced and compact cloud alternatives. He also said that Windows Server Next allows installing a designated client, dispelling the vagueness that Microsoft has cultivated their plans around that area. Presumably, there’s more you can find out by dialing the Windows live chat support number.

Windows Cloud Server

Snover said that being unclear on such matters is detrimental to the company, in that many developers wrote apps with the local GUI admin tools, inserting business logic in these, making them harder to automate. With the Outlook for cloud computing and server storage going nowhere but up, this isn’t a good way for things to be.

Server Next will place remote desktop services above the client, enabling easier remoting on the server. Microsoft is also preparing two types of containers for this, and these will be deployed when the server hits markets in 2016. One will be “a server in a container” and the other will be aimed towards app compatibility, essentially oriented for the cloud.

Deleting Your Chat History In Skype

Windows Live Chat Support

Windows Chat Service Options

Microsoft has discontinued all their old chat service networks like MSN Messenger and made Skype their only Microsoft chat service network for all platforms including the Xbox gaming consoles. The transition was initiated in April 2013 and they provided Windows Live chat support to all users, who were migrating their contacts and other account data to Skype.

Skype is very different from the old Windows Messenger apps and is much easier to use. However, some of the Windows Messenger users might find it difficult to figure out the new settings and features provided in the Skype Messenger. This article will show you how to delete the chat history in Skype Messenger.

How to delete the chat history in Skype Messenger

This is one of the options many Skype users are not satisfied with. In Skype Messenger, there is no option for deleting your chat history with a single Contact. However, there is an option for deleting your chat history stored in the Skype account. But, deleting the chat history only for a single contact is not possible.

There is no point in contacting the Windows Live chat support desk on this one. Microsoft has so far not introduced this option in any of the latest Skype versions either. If you have used the MSN Messenger service before, you would remember that the option for deleting the chat history for individual contacts was indeed provided.

There is an option for deleting a particular text message you have sent to the recipient. But, you have to do this within a few minutes after you have sent that message. Just right-click on that particular message and select the option Remove Message. This will remove that text message alone from your chat history. But, this option will disappear after a few minutes and the message you sent will now be part of the chat history stored in your account.

Then, you will have to delete the entire chat history in your account to delete any message or your chat history with just one contact. For this, sign in to the Skype Messenger and click on the button labelled Skype in the menu bar. Next, select the option Privacy.

There, go to the section Keep History For. Click on the button Clear History to remove all the chat history stored in your Skype account. Remember that this will remove all your IM messages, video call history, the files you sent or received, voice call history and so on. So, think twice before you use this option.

Microsoft Releases New Version Of Skype With Many Advanced Features

Windows Chat Tools

Microsoft has released version 6 of Skype and it adds numerous features to the tool. The new version of Skype is available for Windows as well as Mac users. With the new version, Microsoft has added some cool features to the program like sign-on with Microsoft credentials, Facebook account etc. With this feature, users no longer have to sign up for Skype itself as they just need to log in to their Facebook account or Microsoft account and Skype would use these credentials to login to the account.

According to Windows Live chat support, the new version will bring in Retina display compatibility for Mac users. It will also support multi-window chats. The new version of Skype is going to be more attractive to the Mac users. The earlier versions of the program were cluttered with many unnecessary items and this made it difficult to work with the program and find some of the features and tools in it. However, there have been many improvements with the new version and it offers a cleaner interface to the users. It is hoped that users of Apple’s 15 inch Retina MacBook Pro and those who intend to buy the new 13 inch version of the device would be more benefited with the new version of Skype.

The new Skype app will help the users to chat with other Microsoft programs like Hotmail, Live Messenger and Outlook contacts just as you do with your Facebook contacts. Microsoft does not plan to end the enhancement activities and it is expected that the company would be releasing voice and video call capabilities for Microsoft network contacts for the program in the coming weeks.

Microsoft acquired Skype on May 2011. Along with the purchase of the company, Microsoft had acquired all the technologies of the company. After taking over Skype, Microsoft has phased out Windows Live Messenger, which was the major chat tool of the company.

There have been many other developments in Skype after the software giant took over the company. Skype had reached an agreement with Comcast, which allows the Skype users to make video chats through HDTV sets. The program has also released a free video messaging service, which works on all the major platforms like Windows, Mac OS, Blackberry, iOS, Android etc. Users can expect many more features in the coming months as the company has already announced the release of a new chat, which will help the users to communicate with their colleagues over the same document.

Games For Windows Live Will Continue To Live On

In a plot twist, it appears Microsoft will continue to run and support Games for Windows Live despite all the recent rumors about its apparent demise. The rumors had both been widespread and rampant since August of last year and Microsoft had not officially released a word about it until now. The huge delay had meanwhile caused a lot of implications, with most developers abandoning the servers and migrating to Steamworks.

Gamers were upset for months; unhappy about the indecision from Microsoft and the confusion due to the migration of some games while other games stayed put. When Microsoft’s own game Studio Twisted Pixel released information about the migration to Steamworks, most gamers had believed it to be official confirmation for the long believed rumour. However, Microsoft recently decided to bash the rumor by saying, “We are continuing to support the Games for Widows Live service. We remain committed to investing in PC gaming in the years ahead, and look forward to sharing more in the future.” This dialog not only denies any news about the end of support of GFWL but also informed users about the fact that Microsoft will not stop this service any time in the near future. To get more information about the same, you may contact our Windows Live Chat Support.

The decision from Twisted Pixel to abandon GFWL and move its matchmaking, sharing user-created content and features to Steamworks, the arch rival of GFWL, came in recently. Moreover, the rumor was started not by third party sources or unknown informants. This action was displayed in Age of Empires Online Support page. Moreover, the support article even mentioned a deadline of July 1, 2014 for the end of service. However, later confirmation from spokesperson from Microsoft was never received.

The company officials recently said, “Although customers are unable to purchase new games from the marketplace or receive title updates, they can continue to enjoy previously purchased content by downloading them through the Games for Windows Live client as usual.” Moreover it has been hinted that Microsoft will be looking into going to different avenues, ever since Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division informed that Microsoft’s focus has shifted towards, “a renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming.” Moreover, he had even highlighted that Microsoft will not be competing with Valve and will seek to branch out to different venues. Contact our Windows Live Chat Support for more information about the same.

This statement was provided back in March this year and Phil did include that “you will get a clear answer from us very soon.” However, the recent action from Microsoft has confused users as to what the company sought to gain from losing innumerous games from its server.

Though Microsoft has an excellent support network in place to take care of any issues, when you face issues with one of their products, you really need not call up Windows live chat support for minor things like for using the Xbox 360 wireless headset with Windows Live Messenger.

Voice Chat Between Xbox One And Xbox 360 Not Possible

Windows Live Chat Support

Xbox Live Chat Features

It seems that there will not be any Windows Live chat support for linking Xbox One and Xbox 360. Ever since the release of Xbox One, gaming enthusiasts have been waiting to combine both these popular consoles to establish multiplayer gaming networks online. However, the lack of Windows Live chat support between the two might have spoiled these plans.

Why voice chat between Xbox One and Xbox 360 is not possible?

Microsoft intended to make Xbox One the best gaming console available in the market. Keeping this in mind, they started working on improving the Kinect motion-sensing device, the sound systems, the graphics output, and so on. The result was a gaming console that is technologically much superior to Xbox 360. And, because of this reason, there are a few incompatibility issues between the two consoles.

For example, according to Microsoft, the voice chat system used in Xbox One is much different than that in Xbox 360. The data transfer rate in the new gaming console is higher than that in Xbox 360. All such technological differences have made it impossible to have a live video chat session between the two devices. However, this does not mean they cannot play multiplayer games online.

Both Xbox One and Xbox 360 can be connected to the Xbox Live network and you can enjoy multiplayer games and other entertainment available on the service. Nevertheless, if you want to start a chat session with your friend on the other end, you have to use the text messaging option. The cool party chat options will only work with the same generation consoles.

Voice Chat System

About Xbox Live Audio Chat

According to Microsoft Xbox website, Xbox 360 headsets are set to work with a data transfer rate of 16 KHz for downstream data and 8 KHz, made possible by applying 14-bit compression. However, in Xbox One, the need of data compression is removed and the data transfer takes place at 24 KHz at an uncompressed 16-bit resolution.

So, clearly, there are a lot of differences between the voice data transfer technology used in the two consoles. But, Microsoft needs to reconsider this and come up with some solution to make cross-platform audio chat service available, as their main rival, Sony, has made it possible with PS4 and PS3 without any compatibility issues already.

How To Make Voice And Video Calls Through Windows Live Messenger

Windows Live Chat Support

Install Windows Messenger

Most of you might have used many chat tools available in the market. Even though the basic function of a chat tool is to help you communicate through messages, Windows Live Messenger offers you more. In addition to allowing users to chat with their contacts, the program allows users to make voice calls and video calls with their contacts. This is made possible with the help of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). So, how does this feature work in the program? Let us find out in detail.

Voice calls

According to Windows Live chat support, the program allows users to make PC-to-PC calls with a few simple steps. These calls are inexpensive and are considered one of the best alternatives to the traditional phone calls that would cost you a lot. Let us find out the requirements to make the voice calls.

Once you have installed Windows Live Messenger on your computer, you should setup a compatible microphone and speakers. Both these hardware components are required to make voice calls with the program. Keep in mind that the other contact with whom you wish to make the voice calls should also have these features on his/her computer. Next step is to sign up for the program. You need to provide basic information like your name, email address etc. for this. Once the sign up process is complete, you can start making calls with the contacts.

In order to initiate a call, all you need to do is select the phone icon in the program and then click Call Computer. The computer of the other person would ring at this point and when the other person accepts your call invitation, you may begin the conversation.
