Yahoo Messenger 10 Finally Leaves Beta, Boasts 5 Killer Features
Before I shifted to Mac from PC, I was testing Yahoo Messenger 10 beta on my Desktop PC. Back then I was already impressed by the many features that Yahoo’s IM and chat client has to offer and wondered how far it has gone to. Â YM was the first chat and IM client I used (yup I never tried IRC). Too bad Yahoo Messenger does not support Mac OS X as a stand-alone application. You can only run it through a Mac supported IM client such as Adium. I will surely miss using Yahoo Messenger, most especially now that its version 10 is finally a full version.
If you’re still on PC and using Yahoo Messenger here are the key features that you should look out for in Yahoo Messenger 10:
- high-quality video calls with synced audio
- real-time streaming of your contacts’ updates via ” Y! Updates”
- hover menu for quickly sending IM to friends
- updates are displayed inline in the conversation window for easier threading
- new language menu for shifting from one language to another
