Windows Live Hotmail is definitely getting hotter day by day. Just a couple of months back Microsoft rejuvenated it with a new UI and features. Hotmail has now introduced 5 more features to make your e-mail experience even better! One of the features being - Facebook chat inside Hotmail. We see this as a step taken by Microsoft towards killing their in-house Windows Live chat. Anyways, lets take a look at these new features of Hotmail.

come to my mind regarding this: Microsoft accepts they have lost it to Facebook when it comes to chat and why is MS killing their Windows Live chat by letting Facebook chat inside Hotmail.

Sharing Photos made easy

This new Hotmail feature will enable users to upload photos upto 10GB on their skydrive accounts and embed them in email and send it to friends or family. Although e-mail may have been one of the most used methods for sharing photos with friends and family but we think that is now changing with Facebook!

Videos embedded right inside Hotmail

The new Hotmail lets you create folders inside of folders to manage your email making it easier to quickly find an important e-mail message that you may have read already.
