Editors' Review

+

Get social over the long-established, well-rounded chat and VoIP client Yahoo Messenger and you'll find drag-and-drop capabilities and contact importing from friends other IM, e-mail, and social-networking accounts who are also on Yahoo chat. Another favorite trick is the ability to see images and videos displayed inside the chat window when you or a pal drops in a public URL.

Yahoo Messenger 10 adds some visual enhancements that call out VoIP and video chats on the conversation window. Tweaks in the buddy list showcase an updates tab that operates as a newsfeed for friends' status messages. Other visual refreshes to version 10 spruce up select icons.

Users should note that the download stub will finish installing the program online, and that the download bundles the Yahoo Toolbar. In the preinstallation window, click over to Custom Install to deselect add-ons you don't want. We could also live without the heavy-handed Yahoo branding, and it would be nice to see a link to hidden smileys in the emoticon drop-down, but these are minor niggles when weighed against the benefits of an easy-to-use, feature-rich chat client that only continues to improve.

"-5 stars for this"

March 07, 2010  |  By moe04

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 10.0.0.1102

Pros

Seriously, none at all

Cons

A Lot of "cam girls get your IM address and start bombarding you with invites to view their cams and it's just a bunch of annoying garbage.

Summary

Use MSN Messenger. It's way cleaner than this garbage. You will end up spending more time blocking than chatting.

What's new in version 10.0.0.1102
  • High-quality video calls: We've completely redesigned our 1:1 webcam feature (under the hood too). Now you can make a high-quality video call to a friend with synched audio, right in the IM window. Features include the ability to swap video windows, position the video windows side-by-side, mute the call or place it on hold. You can even go full-screen with your video call. To get started, click the new "Video Call" button in the IM window (your friend also needs to be on Yahoo! Messenger 10)
  • New "Y! Updates" view of your contact list: People are busy these days, doing all sorts of interesting things online. To help you keep up with your friends, we added an alternate view of your contact list that shows a real-time stream of their updates, including Messenger status message changes. If they've opted-in to share their updates via Yahoo!, you'll be able to see what they're saying on Twitter, reading on Yahoo! Buzz, listening to on last.fm, and more.
  • We also added additional features for how and when you see your friends' updates. When a new update comes in, a "toast" alert will pop up in the lower right corner of your screen. If you want to disable these, go to Messenger > Preferences > Yahoo! Updates. You can turn alerts on and off and even update preferences by contact or by type of update.
  • Find more to chat about: Within the new "Yahoo! Updates" view, you're sure to find more to talk about with your friends. To make it easy, we added a hover menu that lets you quickly IM a friend about their update. When you do, the update appears inline in the conversation window, so when you start your IM with "I can't believe you like this song!", your friend will know what you're talking about. Note that your friend needs to also be on Yahoo! Messenger 10 to see the update inline.
  • Change your language easily: If you use the U.S. version but wish it could be in your local language, you're in luck. When you start up Yahoo! Messenger 10, you'll notice a new language menu on the sign-in screen. Choose from 16 different languages and the buttons, menus and various parts of the interface will change to that language. If you're already signed in, you can also change your language under Messenger > Preferences > Language (you'll have to restart Yahoo! Messenger for it to take effect).
  • Yahoo Messenger is now compatible with Windows 7
