Yahoo has this week unveiled a new redesigned Yahoo messenger application which it hopes will take on the likes of Facebook’s messenger service and help rekindle the dwindling Yahoo business.
Yahoo has today launched a new Messenger platform that is now available of smartphones, via the webs and as a desktop client and is now smarter, faster and even easier to use says Yahoo.
Austin Shoemaker, senior director of product management for Yahoo Messenger explains a little more about the inspiration behind the new app.
In most messaging apps, you have to decide between quality or speed. With iMessage, for example, it opts to send you a high-res photo, but it takes awhile to do so. In contrast, WhatsApp downgrades images in order to send them quicker. But we thought: Why not have both?
