  • Windows Live is a discontinued brand name for a set of web services and software products from Microsoft as part of their software plus services platform. Chief components under the brand name include web services, several computer programs that interact with the services, and specialized web services for mobile devices. According to Microsoft, Windows Live "is a way to extend the Windows user experience". As such, Windows Vista's welcome screen provides a link to download Windows Live Messenger or subscribe to Windows Live OneCare. Also, Windows Mail, Windows Photo Gallery and Windows Movie Maker were not offered with Windows 7 and became an exclusive part of Windows Live. Microsoft announced that Windows 8 will see Windows Live apps included right out of the box, and will include built-in synchronization technologies powered by SkyDrive. The Windows Live brand was phased out during August 2012, when Windows 8 was release to manufacturing. Active Windows Live services remained active but were gradually renamed.
