Yahoo! revamped its messenger with an option to unsend messages, photos and GIFs by simply tapping on an item and selecting “unsend” option.
By selecting the unsend option, the conversation will be erased from everyone’s view, including the sender. The new messenger is available for mobile, the Web and in Yahoo Mail on the desktop.
“We’re excited to introduce the next generation of Yahoo Messenger. It has long been one of our core products but it was time to redesign the product from the ground up and reinvest in one of the most important products in our history as a company,” said Jeff Bonforte, senior vice president of communication products and engineering at Yahoo.
The new messenger is also integrated with Flickr’s photo platform and Tumblr’s GIF services. The messenger now also lets people to “like” a photo, message or GIF with a tap similar to the facility available in Facebook.
Yahoo Messenger desktop users (on the Web or in Yahoo Mail on the desktop) can also enjoy Account Key, which uses push notifications to provide fast and secure access to Yahoo account from the Yahoo Messenger mobile app. It frees users from memorizing passwords, and makes signing-in as easy as tapping a button.
The new messenger is is available globally today in the Apple App Store and Google Play as well as on the Web. Currently the app is available in English, but the company promised it will be available in local languages soon.
