Yahoo launched the revamped Messenger app on mobile and the Web at the end of last year. And finally, Yahoo has announced that the application is now available for Windows and Mac users. The new platform provides you with a fast and easy way to send (and unsend) not only messages, but also photos and animated GIFs.
New Yahoo Messenger have a unique feature to unsend a message, photo, or GIF – when you unsend a message, the content will be removed for everyone in the conversation in real time.
According to a blog post from Yahoo’s senior director of product management Austin Shoemaker, “Want to share photos from your latest vacation or simply spice up a message? Save precious time with our drag and drop feature to share multiple photos at once. Then, spread the love by “liking” any posts or images that stand out to you. If you’d rather reply with a GIF, you can easily search and send GIFs to your heart’s content. Pro tip: play GIF roulette and type /gif + any search term.”
The new Yahoo Messenger desktop app is available for download on Windows and Mac. It’s worth mentioning here that the older version of the Yahoo Messenger desktop app will stop functioning from August 5.
