Windows Live was announced on November 1, 2005. Several Windows Live properties were rebranded and enhanced from Microsoft's MSN set of products and services.

Microsoft said that Windows Live "is a way to extend the Windows user experience".[3] However, some Web browser based Windows Live applications are available outside of Windows, and Windows doesn't include Windows Live application either.
