You can not see who is on line, find your contacts. When someone logs in you hear the KNOCK, when they send you a message you hear the CHIME.

IT IS ALL GONE AWAY NOW. Why do you hate us and make things worse.

Would someone please develop a new Messenger with all the old features. You have ruined a lot of peoples live and cause us to lose contact with great friends.

I will agree with that comment about the new yahoo messenger, it is the "worse" messenger I have ever seen or tried to even use, I don't even know how to add a contact if I wanted to and the screen is way too large, and it is a mess, I have trillion messenger and its sooo much nice to use and its user friendly with options on adding things, contacts etc, put the yahoo messenger back the way it was!

Yahoo Messenger Desktop Application Review

The new yahoo IM is a step back 15 years. It is awful. Why oh why did you make me upgrade. I know of many who are dumping the new version and moving away from YIM. And I am just another. Goodbye and thanks for the good years.

Why ?

Why revamp something that worked just fine for many years? Whoever thought this up should lose thier job also the person that approved it. It takes up more space, Gives you no indication of who is online or trying to contact you. Overall just a bad product. Congrats. You have just lost a customer. One of many I am certain. You should go back to the original but I am sure you won't have the intergrity to admit you made a mistake and make the customers happy. If by chance you do it will be a refreshing surpise. This will be the last nail in the coffin of the once great YAHOO.

Yahoo messenger "New" version SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

"New" or "Upgrade" - means better NOT worse!!! "New" Yahoo Messenger is A huge step BACKWARDS !!!! The " New" messenger is causing me loss of time and money!!! Who even came up with this design, you don't know who is online, multiple instances of same contact, LARGE window taking up all my work space, impossible to work, why not use simple email then, why have a messenger at all!!! Why even touch the older version when you have nothing better to add??? Did anyone even try / beta test the "new" version before rolling it out??? or rather did any "Real" people try it?? Hopeless, useless, backwards!!! Need the old version back ASAP

I think they are trying to do away with it by reducing it to a fraction of what it was before. I think they have shut most of their yahoo servers down which reflect the lack of a friends list and that.

Now it is more or less a game of blind mans bluff

Yahoo menssenger "upgrade" isn't.. its total ***

I completely agree this app is embarrassing even worse than google wich has always been a steady decade behind yahoo, in spite of the propaganda . This messenger do anything . And where the *** is my credit from my yahoo phone number ? I want that back you ***. I msick of useless moronic people rewriting perfectly good applications until they are totally useless as if that was the intended goal. It amazing to me how difficult everything is on a computer now a days. Yahoo messenger was my goto "always going to work " always goin to remember my conversations with old friends and family etc . now you have ruined it and I hunch the rest will follow. Please dont ever look to google for technical incite they are the most incapable minds on planet earth..

New YM is a huge step backwards

The new YM is a big step backwards. I don't know why anyone who had and used all of the features in the legacy version would want the new one. It has no options/preferences, doesn't allow you to choose to be visible/invisible, won't show you which of your friends are online, and won't let you drag chats into separate windows. It takes away all of the choices you used to have (icons, emoticons,font color, etc). I honestly do not see one area of improvement in the new version. I'll use Legacy until it truly doesn't work, and then I'm going to AIM which has most of the features that YM took away. What in the world were they thinking when they decided to cripple the desktop version this way?

I think Yahoo is trying to phase out the IM part of it's services by cripling them and eliminating the older vers
