Yahoo Messenger 10 Review & Download
By on July 3rd, 2009

recently retired the Vista version of the IM client, however you can still download YM Vista, that aside Yahoo is working on Yahoo Messenger 10, a newer client with better multilingual support and more features.

A pre-alpha version of Yahoo Messenger 10 is doing the rounds of the internet, and we got our hands on it to check it out.

The first change you will notice is the addition of a choice to select the language before you sign into YM.

After logging in you will notice a change from the earlier interface of YM 9, and options to view the updates broadcasted by your friends.

You will see a small notification in the bottom of the screen whenever a contact broadcasts updates to their profiles.

You can also see all the updates by clicking on the Y! Updates button in the main messenger window.

Managing and sorting contacts has also been made easier in YM10, you can sort contacts by name, availability or activity.

YM10 also adds some new options in the preferences, for language, voice and video devices and to manage update, however voice and video chat seems to be disabled right now.

In addition to that there are easy links to manage you pingbox and the updates that you broadcast to your profile.

YM 10 does not have that many features right now, but we definitely would see a lot more features in future releases. The file has been tested for spywares, malwares and viruses and is completely clean. Thanks Sandip.
