Yahoo Messenger 11 provides a number of improvements compared to all older versions of the messaging application.
The latest version of the popular instant messaging client arrived after a long beta period which posed a lot of bugs and problemss and for a time when many of us already expected to hear about the launch of Yahoo Messenger 12 the company re-launched the stable current edition, true, in a more formal completed version. The period of time gained enabled the introduction of numerous optimizations for performance and stability, along with fixes for all bugs found in the beta version.
The key features offered by Yahoo Messenger 11 are numerous and in the following list I will try to summarize the most useful of them all.
The first thing that made me like this version is the feature which allows sending SMS text messages ( on a subscription-based service ). As for the connectivity, it offers the same audio and video calls initiation but also the messaging service helps any user to recover any offline important messages. Support for interactive social games has also been enhanced and it’s now accessible right from the application interface. The collection of games includes titles such as Mafia Wars, Fishville and Pool mainly from Zynga, but it also offers much more than games. As a client, you can play against friends from your contact list, or start a game of your own. The users can follow the status messages and initiate chats with friends on Facebook which made both networks expand even more as well as to comment and get updates coming from networks such as Yahoo Pulse, Twitter or Flickr, without leaving the Yahoo Messenger interface which is very good.
The user is able to use a single status message for all social networks that have account on and it’s simultaneously visible to all friends of those networks. IM sessions can be held with friends from the Yahoo network, Windows Live and Facebook, whether we are in front of the computer or using a mobile phone using the Mobile Web Messenger portal or the mobile version for the Android of the Yahoo Messenger application.
Message archive is accessible online for any conversation from any computer that we login to with the username and password, and we can find desired information with the provided search function. The application interface is better looking and can be customized by applying skins. The range is a 21 selectable skins one, of which 7 are completely new and have been added to the official version of YM11.
