New version of ym is totally useless

This new so called upgraded yahoo messenger is a total huge step back. The old version is much better and suit to my need, much simpler and for me the simpler the better. I can't see who's online or off. No video call. The font are way too big and no option to make it smaller and make it more space efficient. The color .... i don't know what to say. Emoticon... so terrible, everytime I send emoticon to a friend of mine, they asked what emoticon was that? The list are still going.....but i'm tired typing. No doubt a lot of users will leave ym soon.

TERRIBLE NEW MESSENGER

How much money did you actually spend on this NEW messenger? It looks like something out of facebook but WAY worse.. no font change..your stuck with this ugly blue, theres no simple place to add contacts and the connection SUCKS... I think I need to switch to something else.. youve ruined yahoo messenger. Im assuming this is some sort of cost cutting measure. All youve done is upset alot of people that used to love the old messenger. These emotes are a joke. Whos running your company? 11 year olds? I can sell youve spent about 10 dollars on the coding for this *** thing.

The new messanger looks like a third grader made it

The new messanger looks like a third grader made it. They should shorten the name to just MESS. It a huge step back - not forward. There is no font change capability, the colors look like a *** picked them out, and the indicator that the other person is typing is gone. The "friends" list on the left side has anyone I ever sent a e-mail to. How about a "friends area" not a everyone area. And again to get the number count The new messanger looks like a third grader made it. They should shorten the name to just MESS. It a huge step back - not forward.

Yahoo Messenger

I have had Yahoo Messenger since it started it was a perfectly great working program. Then after all these years they come out with the new one. I was able to chat with my daughter in Mexico and see her on camera and talk this new one is so useless I wonder where these people ever get the idea that no camera or voice is useless on this new one, the emoticons suck and you cannot tell when someone is on line. Where do they think that is more beneficial to people. OMG I wonder where they get their brains from. I even wonder if they even looked at this before the forced this *** on us. You need to bring yahoo messenger back. I use to have pictures of people I talked to this new one is so freaking *** and it is far from user friendly. I can understand with this thing why Yahoo Is on the downslide you fix something that is not even broke. I would like to know who the *** is that came up with this software and thought it was so much more better than the previous one. That person needs help. if it is not broke leave it the freak alone. read some of the reviews in fact read them all there is not one good thing said about this being forced on us.

Agree 100%. Yahoo screwed up with the 'new grous' and now they basically killed Messenger.

Way to go Yahoo.

Yahoo Messenger

I HATE the new one! no choices I color type, the emoticons area all BLACK, you can't choose your type set. Like the photo sharing better. The different emoticons that makes noise or say things are now gone. Why change what was working well and now it is *** I am truly thinking to just delete the whole thing!!! It no longer flashes when you receive a message. I work in other windows and need that. I can't just sit here with it open. My boyfriend has it on his computer at work so we can communicate during the day. We both hate it now and may just use texting! Bring back the old messenger!

I agree!! Yahoo, please help.

The new is sooooooooooooo much worse. What were you thinking?

My company is now looking for a new option. What a mistake.

#1206382

I agree! I HATE the new version!

It's boring! We use it at work and I am now looking into switching everyone over to Skype Messenger.

It's a lot like the old Yahoo Messenger except better! Has fun emoticons and gifs, etc.

Yahoo’s worst enemies hide amongst its management lines…

This is in loyal defense of Yahoo Messenger and against the conspiring decisions of those inside Yahoo, Inc whose current business strategy are effectively driving it into the obsolescing extinction. The following warning pops up at the startup of Yahoo Messenger all over the world… This is not an invitation to a better experience, but an arbitrary imposition derived from the negligent decision of a disrespectful company’s management. “YahooMessenger: Final reminder! Your version of Yahoo Messenger will stop working as of August 31, 2016. Get the newest version for Windows, Mac or mobile at https://messenger.yahoo.com/download to continue using Yahoo Messenger. For more information, go to https://yho.com/YMhelp” The purpose of a business activity is validated and thereof justified by its causes and by the benefits delivered; i. e. a mutual reciprocity between the company’s stakeholders and its customers. Those in charge of the management of a business must understand the implied responsibilities, liabilities and repercussions derived from poor management and from failed decisions. . A lack of vision, the poor management of opportunities and both the uncommitted provider/customer relation along to a negligent business conduction have deteriorated the potential of what once was the most relevant event in the world wide web; YAHOO!. Those who have shown faith on yahoo in their investor portfolios have, for many months, experienced the progressive decay of the value of their assets, which show evidence that today Yahoo is in the hands of its worst enemies. Yahoo is the compendium of a diversity of communities unified by a culture based on the creation and distribution of capabilities, resources, benefits, values and the tangible access to a better life standard for everybody. The managers of Yahoo must understand that the trust and the preference granted by their customers was grounded and built on the expectancy of developing a productive, dependable, functional and long enduring interrelation. With this experience in mind and due to the important role that Yahoo Messenger has played for many years in the social and business life of thousands of millions all over the planet; we feel the obligation to take part in the defense of what has been accomplished until now with Yahoo Messenger because yahoo is the result of a combined effort between the provider and the users. As in-congruent as it gets, today’s management decisions at Yahoo, Inc have driven this company into its darkest era. We totally dis-accord with the approach that has caused these events, which compel us to question the basis of justification of Yahoo’s management decisions. Yahoo, Inc must not overlook the fact that the trust and the preference that their customers have granted to their work until now, constitute the purpose and the justification of their existence, the reason of their efforts and the real value of their business. Yahoo must also keep in mind at all moments the fact that the potential and the success of their business are direct result of the social participation. Now at only few days from its introduction, the New Version of Yahoo Messenger has already had its chance to prove being a complete failure. We find difficult to accept Yahoo management’s decision on discontinuing the previous and the current versions of Yahoo Messenger, because they are replacing it with an inferior product as is the case of the “New Yahoo Messenger” (Ver. 0.8X). We have bench-marked this new version, we’ve compared it with the three previous versions and we’ve found that by itself is a crippled application and therefore a very disappointing experience; the general opinion of our customers’ community agree to state that “The new Yahoo Messenger is definitely unacceptable as the replacement of an application that for many years, has held the leadership for its great functionality and quality” We are concerned about the future that Yahoo. Inc may have ahead, its spirit is fading out rapidly, and this is no longer the Yahoo that brought the social life to the internet, now we are evoking the experiences that we had in the past with all the products from Yahoo. Yahoo urgently needs a loyal management team to take over its direction; because a business that loses its vision and goals loses its reason to exist; i.e. the thousands of millions of worldwide users of Yahoo and the business that they offer. “The King has died... long live the King” The empire has now lost it purpose and its now running into obsolescence!
