This new feature supports multiple applications on the Outlook.com page, such as Inbox, Calendar, Address Book, and SkyDrive. For example, the user will be able to chat with Google while writing an email.

Dames Maita, senior product Manager at Microsoft Outlook.com, Dharmesh Mehta, said in Monday: "One of the reasons that users reflect that they are not switching from Gmail to Outlook.com is the lack of chat interoperability." ”

Microsoft has now linked Google's API to enable outlook.com to support Google Talk text messaging, but currently does not support video and audio communications. "If a large number of users want to support video and audio communications, we will certainly discuss it with Google," Damez Meta, senior director of Outlook.com, said Dharmesh Mehta. "In addition, currently outlook.com does not support the chat with Google Friends group function. Maita said Microsoft might launch the feature in the future.

To enable Google Buddy chat on the Outlook.com page, users simply use Google's standard OAuth system to connect to their accounts, allowing Microsoft to access their accounts. After that, the user simply puts the mouse on the Gmail user's contact list to start a new conversation by passing through the standard dialog panel.
