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

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

Your groups, your way
