December 4, Manila: Yahoo! Inc. today introduced a brand new Yahoo Messenger for mobile, the Web and in Yahoo Mail on the desktop. With the new Yahoo Messenger, you can send any almost any kind of messages: GIF, Text, Photos, Emojis/ Emoticons 🙆 and ASCII codes ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

“We’re excited to introduce the next generation of Yahoo Messenger. It has long been one of our core products but it was time to redesign the product from the ground up and reinvest in one of the most important products in our history as a company,” said Jeff Bonforte, Sr. Vice president of Communication Products and Engineering at Yahoo. “The messaging space has grown dramatically, yet people ultimately want a fast and easy way to communicate with each other. The new Yahoo Messenger was designed first and foremost to meet those needs. This is just the beginning of what’s to come.”  

So what are the new features of the new Yahoo Messenger? Start counting as the you read its latest features

Features of the new Yahoo Messenger for mobile, web and Yahoo Mail:

Fast, Easy Photo Sharing

Powered by Flickr’s photo platform, instantly send hundreds of photos using the simple upload tool. The photos you share are displayed in a photo drawer that scrolls horizontally, so they can be viewed in the context of the conversation, without interrupting the flow of the conversation.

Animated GIF Search and Share

In a Yahoo Messenger conversation, it’s easy to search and find the perfect GIF to send. Powered by Tumblr, there is a GIF button in the message box that opens a GIF search and also displays a collection of the top trending GIFs on Tumblr.

Unsend Messages, Photos and GIFs

Avoid potential embarrassment with the unsend feature. Simply tap on a message, photo or GIF and select “Unsend” to remove it from a conversation; not only from your view, but everyone else’s too. No more sender’s remorse!

Show Some Love With a “Like”

And, we all love getting props from our family and friends, so in Yahoo Messenger you can “like” a photo, message or GIF with a tap.

Convenience of Account Key

Yahoo Messenger desktop users (on the Web or in Yahoo Mail on the desktop) can also enjoy Account Key, which uses push notifications to provide fast and secure access to your account from the Yahoo Messenger mobile app. It frees you from memorizing complicated passwords, and makes signing-in as easy as tapping a button.


The next-gen Yahoo messenger can be downloaded for free! Yahoo Messenger is available globally today in the Apple App Store and Google Play as well as on the Web. Yahoo Messenger in Yahoo Mail on the desktop is rolling out globally starting today. The apps are currently in English only but soon will be available in local languages.

Which language would you like Yahoo Messenger to be available next?
