Yahoo messenger rebuilt with new features

Yahoo Messenger has just launched a new version with a feature every web user has been dying for: the ability to take back messages. In fact, the new messenger, which is now available for mobile, web and on Yahoo Mail, will let you unsend text messages as well as photo .In other words, Yahoo Messenger looks like Facebook Messenger, or WeChat, or WhatsApp, or Viber, or Line… You get the point, do we need yet another messaging app?

Yahoo isn’t a newcomer in the messaging space. The company first launched Yahoo Messenger in 1998 as an alternative to AIM. It was a desktop instant messaging app. But now, it’s a brand new world when it comes to messaging, and Yahoo has rebooted Yahoo Messenger.

New Yahoo Messenger apps were released smartphones or tablets powered by Apple or Android software, as were versions of the service tailored for use on the Web or on desktop computers.
"Yahoo decided it was time to build a ground-up rewrite of the platform that was completely modern and prepares Yahoo to ship really disruptive innovative features," Yahoo Messenger senior director of product management, Austin Shoemaker, said while giving AFP a look at the platform.
