Show Currently Playing Song as Yahoo Messenger Status

Quite sometime back we had told you about a tool that would allow you to change the status of to the song you are currently playing in Windows Media Player and Winamp, however that tools quickly became paid.

Just came across another Winamp plugin, that will allow you to set the currently playing song from Winamp as your Yahoo Messenger status.


This plugin can change the Yahoo! Messenger status text with the current playing song information, such as the title, artist, song name, or playlist entry number.

YMS Status Changer Features

  • Flexible text formatting;
  • Global hotkeys support;-
  • Customizable behavior (e.g. not to change the status while invisible, etc.);
  • Special effects with the status text
