There's a modern, redesigned version of Yahoo Messenger on the block boasting brand-new features.
On 5 August 2016 older versions of Yahoo Messenger will be discontinued, so you'll need to upgrade your PC with this new one if you want to continue using it.
Luckily Yahoo Messenger for desktop has added a bunch of new features like the ability to share photos instantly, send animated GIFs, and even unsend messages.
The all-new Yahoo Messenger for Windows allows you to:
• Chat individually or in groups
• Take back your messages. Tap "Unsend" to remove photos and messages from a conversation
• Instantly share lots of high-resolution photos in one go
• Search and browse curated categories of animated GIFs from Tumblr
• "Like" messages and photos in your conversations
• Offline/low connectivity mode - anything you share will be posted once you're back online
Yahoo recently announced support for Hindi (on Android devices only), Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Indonesian languages.
Yahoo Messenger is also available as a download on iOS and Android.
