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.

"Wow... what a POS! Can we give negative stars?!"

April 23, 2012  |  By sshahpari89

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 11.5.0.192

Pros

absolutely nothing! I wish i was exaggerating!

Cons

Everything and anything about this app! Again, what a POS, the people who wrote this program never went to college!

Summary

I'm happy Yahoo is losing more and more support every quarter when their report comes out, what a TERRIBLE company in every way shape and form! Wow, truly disappointed!

"it wants me to do things other then read my inbox"

April 15, 2012  |  By leroy slater

 |  Version: Yahoo Messenger 11.5.0.192

Pros

I like yahoo, i can see/read my emails. Put some into folders for safe keeping.

Cons

I am busy with MY inbox emails, I have no time to be involved with chat/friends.

Summary

I can only hope that the social functions can be put aside, and I can do only what I want TO DO.

Updated on Apr 15, 2012

I do really like my yahoo, so easy to use. I want like to be able to select all the options. It seems I am not in the mood to invite unknown others into my life. Some time in the future, probably, but know my life situation, is such a big problem, I don't need any more complications.
