Yahoo! Messenger for Windows Vista

Yahoo! Messenger for Windows Vista

Built from the ground up specifically for Microsoft Windows Vista, the new version of Yahoo! Messenger looks so cool that I want it for Windows XP as well 😀

The features include:

  • Instant message, voice, webcam video, and more
  • Use the integrated Yahoo! Messenger Sidebar gadget to keep up with the friends that matter most
  • Also add Windows Liveâ„¢ Messenger friends to your contact list to see when they’re online and IM them
  • Keep conversations organized by dragging and dropping them into one tabbed window
  • Brand new emoticons, program icons and alert sounds
  • Instantly change the look and feel of your Yahoo! Messenger interface
  • Automatic groups are created in your contact list based on your Yahoo! interests (i.e. Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football league)

This announcement follows after Google released a Vista-compatible version of Google Talk.

Checkout the Video available that demonstrates the new features of Yahoo! Messenger for Vista.

    Well, I must say that I am VERY disapointed in Yahoo. I recently bought a brand new computer that came with Vista Basic. Little did I know about all of the poor glitches that Yahoo and Vista created while mixing the 2. For the past 10 months, I have not seen ANYthing new that Yahoo is putting out for Vista. All we keep seeing is the same \”YAHOO MESSENGER FOR VISTA COMING SOON!\” Well, I don’t think 10 months and counting is very soon-like to me. I even signed up for the Vista/Yahoo Messenger newsletter and still have not yet recieved anything that shows Yahoo is actually working Von anything Vista-related.
    Well, I have come to the point where I am completley done with Yahoo. Yahoo is horrible at updating their services, and I no longer want to be a part of the Yahoo community. I have deleted EVERYTHING Yahoo-related off of my computer. I no longer use Yahoo e-mail, messenger, or any other Yahoo tool bars…etc. I won’t even search on Yahoo anymore. Yahoo just flat out SUCKS!

    I switched to Paltalk and they update their servers atleast once a week. They listen to the public and ask what would we would like to see, and they respond back to us. So for those of you using Yahoo…I highly recomend using PalTalk instead. It’s great and has MANY features Yahoo can not compete with.
