Release Date: August 8, 2005.
Yahoo Messenger has long been used for text chats, for which it was a favorite app. The addition of audio and video chats put Yahoo Messenger up against a lot of other similar products, but it has remained a popular app on Windows.
Each iteration has added new features and capabilities, and added things like radio streams, games, and more configuration options. Yahoo Messenger integrates with other Yahoo services like email.
Yahoo Messenger is provided free of charge and can be downloaded and used with a generic "Yahoo ID" which also allows access to other Yahoo services, such as Yahoo Mail, where users can be automatically notified when they receive new email. Yahoo instant messenger also includes a security feature which allows the user to be "invisible" to whoever they choose.
The setup process should not be too difficult when choosing the offline installer. If one goes for the file downloader provided by Yahoo, they need to remember to double check their options, because it might offer some changes to the browser and the default search engines.
Once the installation is complete, one simply needs to input their Yahoo! username and password, and they can start chatting. Those who get annoyed by the Yahoo! Insider window that pops out every time they log in can disable it using the 'Preferences' menu.
All in all, Yahoo Messenger remains a top choice in the instant messaging category and it is seriously worth a try for those looking for a free way to chat on the Internet.
