Once FB chat killed MSN Messenger, everything became possible, imo. I'm sure Teamspeak and Skype will die out someday if Discord keeps on growing.

Man I remember having group chats in AOL IM back in the day. I never even used the AOL website in itself and just used the messenger.

I kinda miss those things, it was easier to find new friends that way, and I've met friends I still talk to to this day thanks to AOL and Yahoo IM Nowadays social media only works for people you know in person and it's kinda creepy to get a random friend request from someone you don't know.

I hope Skype sticks it out. It's still the best for multi person podcasts and a good way for friends to send you files too large for email.

IMO the only way Skype dies off is if Microsoft feels there's no longer an investment. Teamspeak's been on life support ever since Discord came to be.

I dont think Skype will ever die out, a lot of people use it, not for the text chat, but for voice and video chat, which is what is primarily used for, shows and podcasts rely on it.

Kinda sad after so long. Although I'm also kind of surprised to hear that it has still been around.

If I used it at one time that was long, long ago. (Unless you had to be a customer, then maybe I'm thinking of something else.)

First Windows Live Messenger, then Yahoo Messenger, and now AIM, ICQ is still around though, and I still use it

There's a new version of Yahoo Messenger, but its not the same as the old one, since it rekues on people to send each other messages using there yahoo mail account.
