Yahoo! Messenger allows you to quickly exchange messages with your online friends. Unlike e-mail, instant messages appear as soon they're sent. By downloading the application to your computer, you can send instant messages. Other features include voice chat, file transfer, mail and stock quote alerts, sports scores, news, and much more.

Share more photos, faster

Instant, high resolution photo sharing lets you share your entire weekend at once in a photo carousel.

Finally, take backs

Wish you could take back that message or photo? Tap “Unsend” to remove it from the conversation.

Say it with a GIF

Why limit your reaction to an emoji? Express yourself with animated GIFs.

Your groups, your way

Start one-on-one conversations or create group chats simply using your contacts.

Show some love with a "Like"

It’s easier than ever to respond to messages and photos with a simple “like”.

Chat right from your email

Sign in to Yahoo Mail and check to see if the new Yahoo Messenger is available in your inbox. If it’s not now, it will be shortly.

What's New:

  • Enhanced photo sharing - Now you can share lots of high-resolution photos at once, and swipe to view them in a photo carousel.
  • Unsend - Regret something? Simply tap it and select "Unsend" to remove it from the conversation.
  • Likes - Tap on a message or photo to let the sender know you like it.
  • Animated GIFs - Express yourself with animated GIFs from Tumblr (available on Android, iOS and web).
  • Offline and low connectivity mode - Anything you share will be posted once you're back online.
