What can you do with your Windows Live ID? : #6 Get news delivered to your inbox

with 8 comments

[In this series of blog entries I’ll be exploring what else you can do with your Windows Live ID other than access Windows Live products and services. See the complete list here.]

As recently announced by the Live Search team, you can now get news alerts sent directly to the email inbox associated with your Windows Live ID.

image You can choose a news category or any topic that you like. Any news items related to that category or topic get sent to you by email either daily or weekly.

Head to http://news.live.com to try it out!


Note that at the time of writing this feature is currently only available in the USA <sigh>.

  1. Jamie, I have a question for ya? Let’s just say I already have a live id, docextreme5@msn.com this id I use. Is there anyway for me to request another Live id to login to the same account. Sample docextreme5@live.com. Thanks for your help

  2. So what your saying I can only login to one account for each ID? correct. It’s just I have had this id for years now that Wl is making changes I like the Live.com better. thanks so much for your help.

  6. There seems to be confusion about Live ID’s and the new Alerts feature in Live Search. You DO NOT need a new Live ID to use it. Your current ID, what used to be called "Passport" is your Live ID. This would be the email you already have registered as a Live ID such as MSN.com, Hotmail.com, Live.com Hope this helps particularly for the comments from Docextreme G. Cheers.

  7. Not particularly exciting. I think they should be completely focused on improving the actual search itself.
