Can't connect to messenger since 5/11/16 Says "We need to get a few details in order to get you logged in. Would you like to try again? Or switch to using a different account?" It won't let me get any further than this, despite accepting my account key everytime. Also, I was using IM+ app to connect since that was the only way I could connect. Now it says that third party apps will no longer work since August 31. Guess Yahoo doesn't care about its user base anymore.
Miss old For the pc it's bad I like the old interface and options invisible to only those you want to talk to seaperate Windows for each person. Able to see chat history most of the old features. New one is like using a web browser needs to be seaprate app not off the web browser. Sorry but this missed the mark to back to old style or make and old style or app work again
If it ain't broke... Yahoo has ruined their messenger. I hope they read all of these negative reviews and go back to the original format. The phone app will no longer load properly and I have missed many messages. Even after erasing the app and reloading it, it still won't work.
Awful New Interface The old YIM was just fine, and now that there's literally no more contact list it's nearly impossible to keep up with people using this app. I've switched to other IM platforms for the most part. The only reason I'm giving this two stars is because it technically functions properly, the new UI was just a terrible idea.
VERY HANDY I love having this little app on my phone for Yahoo. You don't get that with other emails- so its a nice touch and also very handy and useful to use. Yahoo's got it right! It's got that many downloads for a reason!
Lost old messages My old version stopped working so I had to update. I looked over reviews and assumed my old messages would be safe. I just discovered they are gone. Years of conversations I've been saving are gone. If I knew that would happen I would not have updated. Is there a way to get them back? I'm heartbroken over this. Can someone from Yahoo Please get back to me asap.
