Imonline video chat
; I’m referring to 1990s-style MSN Messenger-esque apps. But, if you’re an instant messaging fan, don’t worry.
I’m sure many-a-tear was shed in October 2017 when AOL announced its famed Instant Messenger app would shut down for good at the end of the year.
Given Yahoo’s ongoing security issues, you might want to think twice about signing up if you’re not already a member.
In 2016, it looked like the service might be coming to an end; Yahoo closed its Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris clients.
However, fast-forward a year, and it’s clear the company hopes the app can make a comeback – a new Windows app is available, with a Mac app reportedly in the works. Yahoo Messenger lets you Like messages, send GIFs, and – if you use your Yahoo email address – chat from directly within its web client. Remember, if not of these apps suit your needs, almost every social network now offers some form of instant messaging tool.
They include Facebook, Google Plus (via Google Hangouts), Snapchat, and Instagram.
The app is accessible through both a web portal and your smartphone. After launching in 1996, it rapidly grew in popularity. If you’re one of the 11 million, you can enjoy offline messaging, group chats, free text messages, file transfers, greeting cards, games, and even a searchable user directory.
