Yahoo-Messenger-10

  • High-quality video calls
    The webcam feature has been completely redesigned. It now supports high quality video call with synced audio from the IM window itself.
  • New Y! Updatesview of your contact list
    Yahoo Messenger 10 introduces an alternate view of your contact list, which allows you to quickly catch up with your friend’s latest activities. The Y!Updates mode displays a real-time stream of their updates including status message changes. If your contacts have chosen to share their social activity with Yahoo, you will be able to keep track of what your contacts are saying on Twitter, reading on Yahoo! Buzz or listening on Last.fm.
  • Find more to chat about
    If you want to chat with your friend about their updates, you can do so through a hover menu which allows you to IM a friend about their updates. When you do this, the update also appears inline in the conversation window, so that your friend will be aware of the context.
  • Change your language easily
    Yahoo Messenger 10 introduces a Language menu (visible in the sign-in screen), which allows you to instantly chose any of the 16 available languages. You can also change your language from Messenger –> Preferences –> Language.

The official Yahoo Messenger 10 download link will offer you the web-installer. If you have a poor internet connection or simply prefer to download the full installer, you can do so from Softpedia.
