messenger + skype all in one with the new skype

As announced by Paul Thurrott (@thurrott) the new skype has Messenger Integration


How it Works?

First, install the new version. It’s the 5.11 Beta Version,

Run the setup and after the install, if you have it previously running sign out, then sign in with your Live Id Account:

Pretty nice.
