The famous messaging application for computers which had those funny gifs and the BUZZ button with which the users got their friends’ attention, it’s now available for mobile devices and it has extra features such as group messaging and something that has been borrowed from the Flickr, Tumblr and Xobni platforms. To find out more about the rest of the features and the changes that this application comes with, read this article and you’ll want to install Yahoo Messenger on your Android or iOS devices.

Yahoo Messenger made its appearance 17 years ago, and its creators launched it under the name of Yahoo Pager, but the current name has been given to it in 2005. The users logged in with their Yahoo ID, which was the name of the email address on Yahoo, and they also needed a password. On YM, they were able to transfer files, make video chats, group chats and to customize their look of the Instant Message window with the IMVironments feature. Also, the users could post a Custom Status Messages and BUZZ their friends when they were ignoring them. Yahoo has removed the public chat rooms in December 2012 and since then, the application has gone through a lot of changes.

Now, if you have an Android or iOS device, you can install Yahoo Messenger and use it to send text messages, images, GIF, unsend the message, or post likes in your message. The GIFs are borrowed from Tumblr and from Xobni was taken the smart contacts system. Now, when having group conversations, any member can invite other contacts, not only the creator of the group. Also, anyone can change the name or photo of the group.

In addition, when having a conversation with multiple users, you can send hundreds of photos at a time to all users, and they will be downloaded in their full resolution and quality. Also, when having problems with the connection and the message can’t be sent, the application will remember this task and when the connection is better, the message is resent.
