Yahoo! Messenger is a free popular instant messaging software that allows you to chat with users from Yahoo! Network but also from MSN, Gmail, Facebook and some other networks. But it doesn\'t only limit to chat. Yahoo! Messenger has many other great features such as video and voice calling, photo sharing, file transfer, mail alert and much more.
The interface is based on one window, with option menu on top, your status and profile picture (also known as avatar) below that followed by the contact list. Engaging into a conversation will open a separate window that allows you, additionally to instant messaging, to use features like video call, voice call, photo sharing and more.
While most of the Yahoo! Messenger features are free, there are some that you need to pay for, like Phone Out and Phone In. Phone Out allows you to make a call from your PC to a real phone, opposite to that Phone In allows you to be called from a real phone to your PC by having a number assigned to your Yahoo! Messenger account.
File transfer allows you to send files up to 2GB to anyone in your contact list and it can be done easily by just dragging and dropping or by using the “Send File” function in the “Actions” menu. Additionally in the action menu more options can be found such as photo sharing, sending a mail, inviting to a conference and more.
Yahoo! Messenger is highly customizable, many options can be found in the “Preferences” under the “Messenger” menu, as changing the way it starts, the sounds and alarms, the appearance such as skin, the font and text color, the way ID\'s are displayed, the language and many more.
Other important options are Webcam Broadcast customization, that allows to change they way your webcam broadcasts, balancing between faster speed or better quality depending on your internet connection speed; Ignore List, allowing to ignore anyone that is not added to your contacts or specific people; Archive, that gives you the option to keep the message you send and receive.
Yahoo! Messenger also comes with a plug-ins list you can opt for from the “Action” menu such as Yahoo! Music letting you browse through radio station sorted by theme or genre, Yahoo! Messenger Games allowing you to play games online, Yahoo! Movie Trailers, Yahoo! Weather and many more.
Good sound and video quality
Supports importing contacts from other networks
Good integration with other Yahoo! services
With his multiple features, plug-ins and customization options and with the fact that it allows connecting users from different networks, Yahoo! Messenger is more then an ordinary instant messaging software, therefore I will award him 4.5/5 stars.
