Windows Live Wave 4 web services to be released June 3?

Earlier this month, Microsoft France’s student website accidentally spilled the news that Windows Live Essentials Wave 4 will be available on June 21. Later on, an email from [email protected] gave us hints that Windows Live Wave 4 web services (like Profile, Groups, SkyDrive, Photos, Office…etc.) will start rolling out in early June. This time, a post on Windows Live Solution Centre by an official Microsoft support staff (Etienne L) confirmed that Windows Live Wave 4 web services will be released on June 3. Here’s what was posted:

The original in French:

Nous venons d’avoir des informations quant à ce problème et cela est sans doute dû au fait qu’une nouvelle version de Windows Live Skydrive et Windows Live Photos est en préparation et sortira le 3 Juin. Les produits du réseau social Windows Live sont liés entre eux et pendant que nos ingénieurs travaillent sur cette nouvelle version, cette fonctionnalité est hors-service.

Translated by Bing Translator:

We have just had information about this problem and this is probably due to the fact that a new version of Windows Live SkyDrive and Windows Live Photo is under preparation and will be released June 3. The social network Windows Live products are interrelated and while our engineers are working on this new version, this feature is down.

Microsoft previously confirmed that the final version of Office Web Apps on Windows Live will be available to the public starting June 15. If the above information is true, that means we’ll be able to start using the Wave 4 web services in less than a week! This can only be good news!

(Thanks to for picking this up!)
