Windows Live, the collective name under which several Microsoft services and products are gathered, has seen quite a lot of activity recently – and by that I mean several updates have been implemented. Some of these changes you may be aware of, some of them may have slipped by. No worries, here is a quick recap of all the mods implemented to Windows Live for the past few weeks.

Windows Live has new web activities; Windows Communications Manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, Brandon LeBlanc explains: “20 new third-party feed partners were added to Windows Live including Facebook, Digg, and SmugMug. MySpace will also be added in the coming months, so that MySpace customers can share activities and updates from MySpace to people in their Windows Live network. By adding new feed partners to Windows Live, it’s easier for you to connect your activities various blogging sites, social networks and photo sharing sites and share them with your friends in your Windows Live network.”


To check the new web activities out, visit your Windows Live Profile and select “Web activities” from the lower left-hand cornet of the screen.

You can add new contacts to Windows Live, contacts from 5 social networks: MySpace, hi5, Tagged and Facebook.

Windows Live Hotmail has built-in IM capabilities, meaning that you can access your Windows Live Messenger account directly from within Hotmail. I particularly enjoyed this feature’s implementation and reported upon it here. Why did I enjoy it? Simply because you can access your Windows Live Messenger regardless of the fact that it is not installed on a machine (like when you visit one of your friends that does not have Windows Live Messenger but is courteous enough to let you use his PC

Windows Live SkyDrive, the online service formerly known as Windows Live Folders that is provided by Microsoft to Windows Live users and provides free online storage and sharing services, features several new improvements: the option to arrange photos as you see fit, view just photos of yourself or a particular friend, support for Windows Live Favorites. A detailed article on these updates is available here.

Last but not least, the new Windows Live UI has seen the implementation of the Windows Live Sync web page.
