    Users of Microsoft and Yahoo's instant messaging (IM) services will soon have millions of new people to chat with after the two companies announced plans to make each service compatible with the other.

    Combining the two services will allow 275 million customers of Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger to swap free instant text messages with users on either IM network.

    Microsoft and Yahoo say their interconnectivity agreement – an industry first – will create the largest consumer IM market in the world.

    "Being able to instant message between IM communities is one of the features most requested by MSN Messenger and Yahoo Instant Messenger users," the companies said in a joint statement.
