Yahoo Messenger has been one of the first elite Instant Messaging clients with its initial version launched way back in 1998. A lot has been improved for Yahoo since then. The company has been through several ups and downs in this ultra dynamic world of technology. Regardless of the turbulences, Yahoo has released an all new and improved Yahoo Messenger Desktop App. The new app dons a changed standard logo and a few things on the feature front. App offers an all new elevated messaging experience with the introduction of chat groups. Apart from this, it brings forth the ability to send pictures and animated GIFs as well. Let’s have a brief look at the reincarnated Yahoo Messenger app.
Yahoo Messenger Desktop App Features
The newly designed from scratch, the app has several features that makes it an interesting chat platform as it always has been. Take a look at few of the mainstream features the app brings forth:
Say it with GIFs
People want to express their emotions and opinions in most creative ways possible, and GIF is an interactive way to confer your feelings. Yahoo Messenger has a rich and ever-growing GIF repository, drawn out from various Tumblr posts which span over diverse scales of emotions. You can easily search and send out the GIF you deem fit for conversation. Now, people can easily understand your mood without any need of fancy words. Presently, you can also see a whole lot of GIFs related to Summer Olympic Games at Rio.
Easily unsend or like a message
Gone are the days when you’d have to regret over a text sent by mistake to an unintended person. You can now easily unsend any of your text/GIF message, by clicking the trash icon next to each message in a conversation. Within moments, it will vanish from yours, as well as the receiver’s chat screen.
In addition to the unsending a message, you can also show your love by liking any message in a conversation. With a mixture of social tinge, this feature can be real fun in chat groups with your friends.
Yahoo Messenger delivers desktop notifications for any conversation you are having so that you don’t miss out on anything while you are multitasking. It catches your eye with the meek toast notification if you are working on something while sparing yourself some gossip time along with your friends.
Yahoo Messenger has rolled out the new desktop app for both Windows and Mac. You can download it for your Windows PC from here. If you’re using any old version of Messenger app, make sure to update it to the latest version now as the previous version will stop working from now on.
Some of the old features seem to have been removed, but overall, the new app is quite good and stuffed with useful nifty features. If you’re a Yahoo person, you must find it pretty convenient. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments section below.
