The company just released a completely revamped version of its messaging platform, focused on mobile, group messaging and image sharing.
In other words, Yahoo Messenger looks like Facebook Messenger, or We Chat, or Whats App, or Viber, or Line…
It lets you chat with your friends and create group conversations.
Gone is the availability status, quirky screen names and other old metaphors.
More than just a messenger:• Chat one on one or in groups• Yes, take backs!
Tap "Unsend" to remove photos and messages from a conversation• Instantly share lots of videos and high-resolution photos in one go• Swipe to view photos and videos beautifully displayed in a carousel• Search and browse curated categories of animated GIFs from Tumblr• “Like” messages and photos in the conversation• Offline/low connectivity mode – anything you share will be posted once you’re back online Yahoo Messenger is also available for your computer at messenger. Go to yho.com/YMhelp to learn more about the new changes.
You get the point, do we need yet another messaging app? The company first launched Yahoo Messenger in 1998 as an alternative to AIM. But now, it’s a brand new world when it comes to messaging, and Yahoo has rebooted Yahoo Messenger.
