Editors' Review

Back in the day when social media platforms didn't exist, there was nothing as spontaneous and fun as chatting with your friends online via instant messenger. If you find yourself trying to stay in touch with Yahoo friends and want to stick to the original and reliable IM, then Yahoo Messenger for Mac would be a good choice.

The user interface of this popular IM client looks neat and is quite functional. The seamless integration of Yahoo weather, news, and mail directly in the Yahoo Messenger for Mac will be much appreciated by the people in the Yahoo ecosystem, as it's not intrusive at all. You can use the app to start voice conversation, send an SMS, or call any regular phone, which is a great bonus; however, we feel that the rates should be more competitive if this IM wants to compete with Skype.

Even though anyone who appreciates a good IM app will enjoy Yahoo Messenger for Mac, this app is mainly geared to Mac users who have a lot of friends in the Yahoo network. For those with only a few Yahoo contacts, an all integrated multiprotocol solution might prove more efficient and enjoyable to use.
