The new Yahoo Messenger is so bad it's almost a joke. Unfortunately, a very bad joke. Many of the legacy features have been stripped from the new app. The emoticons are simple line drawings in black and white. They look like something a child would draw. In fact I think kids could draw better emoticons than these. You can not upload files, video chatting is no longer supported and the mono chromatic graphics are so boring it's pathetic. ...

I am done with yahoo And I am going to quit using yahoo all together, And from what all my friends have told me that they are going to get rid of yahoo including e-mail as am I. I understood that yahoo was sold. If it was, good job dumb ***. I hate yahoo now, thanks a lot. why in the world would you change something that works...

the new yahoo messenger is a joke, but no one is laughing. I have indications of people trying to messenger me, but can't get to them, or even have it show who is ym ing me. and this site? is this an English literature site? 100 words? I said it plain and simple. BRING BACK THE OLD MESSENGER, BREAK AWAY FROM VERIZON. ok, for those still watching. I loaded, and setup the messenger, it shows 2 messages waiting, but can't get to them, just...

Was it designed for a child's toy computer? the old yahoo messenger was a good and handy tool for keeping touch in a more meaningful way than facebook with disparate friends, add in the availability to use Trillian and it became a very useful tool. BUT some *** at yahoo / Verizon had the idea to take something that works and really truly screw it up and suffocate it to death. the annoying thing about it is none of these fools at Verizon will...

It takes too long and too many steps to get access to your message log. Where is the VIDEO CALL capability. The INVITE LIST appears to be generated from the many names and email addresses that were in messages you have received, including many I don't even know. There is no easy way available to me, yet, that allows me to get rid of names left over from the previous versions addresses, so a lot of wasted and confusing screen space. With the...

When is yahoo correcting their huge error. Fire whoever did it, plus those who approved it. It sucks big time. It seems there is a mad man on the loose and he ended up at yahoo. I cannot imagine a corporation and it's so called leaders doing something like this. Is there a way to fire them? Will be deleting messenger if not fixed in a few days. It is really very bad. Myself and others I know are removing yahoo mail, news, messenger, and...

I hate it, I literally just cant use it, i had to switch messaging platforms entirely and i am not happy, the old yahoo, even with all it's faults and bugs was still my favorite. I am sick of people "improving" the software I come to count on, just leave it as it is, let happy consumers decide which version they want. You know, it takes a long time to get things just the way I like it, then about that time somebody does something like this....

you new desktop messenger is a flaming pile of dog S#!t!!! You keep removing the very things that got you as a company to where u were in the first place, and now you wonder why your company is fizzling out faster than an Alka-Seltzer in a class of club soda!!

This new Yahoo sucks you can't see your list. You can't tell if someone is online you can't see if someone has messaged you when you have it minimized in your toolbar why change something that has always worked to start with. I have to use it for my job and everybody in our office has done nothing but complain that they hate the new Yahoo

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.
