We had covered a lot of aspects about the new Outlook.com email. Microsoft has now announced that you will be able to chat with your Google Talk friends inside Outlook.com. Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook.com are the top two email service providers available today and with the new announcement, you can chat with Windows Live Messenger (or Skype) and Google Talk right inside Outlook.com.
