Fabulously slow Yes, the old look was better. It was the interface that sold Yahoo the Internet giant 10 years ago, not this insecure little thing that has to access the Internet every time you touched something. The old look was fast and fun. And had there been security issues with it, the way to deal with the issues was to address them below the hood, not to try to keep up with the Joneses and redesign the app with speed bumps in every step of the way.
Yahoo messenger sucks This app hasn't worked properly for months. You can't tell who is on line. Worse still is my partner is overseas and messages me, and even though i am sending replies, he is not getting them. Its really messed things up, as this is the main way we keep in touch. Well done Yahoo. You completely and totally f#@%!d up a perfectly good app, with your so called upgrade. Upgrades are supposed to improve things not make it so that its impossible to use at all. This needs fixing and fixing now.
It's awful Can't see who's online, can't find my other contacts...only a couple showing, THEN there's a few on there that I see but have no clue who they are. PLUS, I can't find how to delete them. Also.... no log off option or option to be invisible like the older version had. IT'S AWFUL!! Yahoo......please fix it!!!
R.I.P. Yahoo......... This app use to be really good. Functionality wise... it's not that bad compared to previous versions. But the new look actually looks creepy. No color or life.. just bland purple. And why does the new smiley look like he sneaks into my house and watches me sleep at night!!!???
A step backwards Ever since this was "upgraded" it had not been good. The lack of presence is a key feature that has been around since the early days of IMs. It's as if they decided to stopping doing one thing well, text and video chatting to make it try to do everything, and failed. It's not easy to tell if you're IMing or texting or what ever. And in the end the recipient may not even get it. It's not worth the headaches.
Not better than the older version cuss it sucks! The features or not as good as the older version. What were they thinking, if they have a good idea why make the so called update worse and make it a downgrade! Any worse and it would be totally worthless! It Totally sucks! There is hardly any options/functions and what little there is totally lame! It totally sucks big time! They need a real update not a downgrade but an update!
Now with typing indicators, you’ll be able to see when the person you’re chatting with starts typing. You can also now zoom and crop profile and group photos, so you can make sure you have that perfect shot!
