I know some persons would be thinking Yahoo Messenger should be snoring its time away in a coffin: dead! But no Yahoo Messenger still lives, alive and kicking competitors. And now about six month after it had launched the improved version of the Messenger app on web as well as on mobile, Yahoo is again announcing that the application is at present up for grabs on Mac and Windows equally. The announcement was made in form of a blog post coming from Austin Shoemaker who occupies the position of Yahoo’s senior director of product management:
“Want to share photos from your latest vacation or simply spice up a message? Save precious time with our drag and drop feature to share multiple photos at once,” Shoemaker said. “Then, spread the love by “liking” any posts or images that stand out to you. If you’d rather reply with a GIF, you can easily search and send GIFs to your heart’s content. Pro tip: play GIF roulette and type /gif + any search term.”
Additionally, the application will also bring i desktop notifications, also to be included is the unsend button whose function is taking back a message, photo or GIF when you have actually sent it. For those making use of the old version of the Yahoo Messenger desktop app, it is important I add in here that by August 5, your app cease to function.
