Yahoo Messenger which can be touted as world’s first online chatting source has been revamped from the ground-up to make it more exuberant to its users. The highlight is that Y! Messenger users can now unsend messages too, with just two taps. This avoids any kind of embarrassment to users who sent a message accidentally to a wrong user.
In order to keep up pace with Whatsapp, facebook messenger, WeChat and other such services, Yahoo Messenger is intending to introduce more enthralling features in 2016.
From now on, when a user shares multiple photos within the app, they appear in a grid that scrolls horizontally. These pictures can be downloaded in full resolution, which is a plus over in apps world as WhatsApp only offers photos in compressed mode. You can also like these photos within the app now. In order to save storage space on your smart phone, Yahoo Messenger will only download photos as you need them and not in a random mode.
Yahoo Messenger also gets Yahoo’s account key password-less login system. This is the first of the kind password system offered by any web services provider.
Here’s how Yahoo’s account key password-less login system works—When users who sign up for Account Key try to access Yahoo Mail, they will no longer need to enter their password. Instead, the Account Key service will send a message to the smart phone connected to the account. With a tap on yes or no, users can indicate it is a legitimate attempt to get into the account or deny unauthorized access. If their smart phone is lost or stolen, users can verify identities through an email or a text message sent to alternative accounts and numbers.
So, enjoy the new features of Yahoo Messenger guys and start chatting!
