Editors' Review


Those users who have a messenger account on their computers may need an application for their smartphones. Yahoo Messenger for Android, while simple and with limited functions, is a well-thought-out chat manager.

Available as a free application, no payments are required to use the application, but users must have or be willing to sign up for a Yahoo account. Download completed quickly, as did installation. Technical support was available for reporting bugs. At startup, the application prompts the user to sign in to their Yahoo account, which synced quickly during testing. Users can also link to Facebook accounts to add more chat options. While there are no instructions, the interface of Yahoo Messenger for Android is easy to use. Contacts that are online are easily identified, but users can also search their contact list for specific people. Past conversations are available for searching and viewing, too. The application also links to additional Yahoo applications, like those for e-mail services. The application's extensive options allow customization of the background images and sounds, among others.

For those who use Yahoo chat services on their computer, Yahoo Messenger for Android handles the typical functions well, but lacks functions that would appeal to others.

    "Excellent alternative for Skype"

    December 01, 2010   |   By ill_nino_101

    Version: Yahoo Messenger for Android 1.0.2


    A working, multi-platform video chat app. In 10 mins I DL'ed it to my PC, iPod touch and Evo and was able to video, voice and text seamlessly! The quality is great over WiFi/3G/4g. I had the ability to send files to your contacts using any device.


    Maybe a 2 second lag. No mute option for the Evo. May need to be forced closed to prevent extra battery depletion.


    Great option for those waiting for Skype video chat to come to Android.
