I cannot believe that a company like Yahoo would release such a crappy product. The new Yahoo messenger was not well thought out, and the team that created it needs to be fired. I guess Yahoo ran out of money to come up with a complete product, no wonder the company has been losing money and had to sell themselves to get out of hot water. This is a horrible downgrade, Yahoo should feel ashamed, my 7 year old nephew could have created a better...

I was expecting something better, instead I have been trying to find a new service since the new client completely and utterly sucks, it shows people I have blocked and it asked me if I want to add them, what???? there is a reason I wanted to block them from the beginning, the emoticons were colorful and funny, nothing left, some awful black and white things that they put there, if they want to lose their costumer base, they are doing the right...

Whose brain child idea was to absolute destroy the Old Yahoo Messenger ? I lost my entire list of friends because NOBODY likes this new piece of (Excrement) called New Yahoo Messenger. This is just another one of these one step forward and three steps back dumb ideas. X-Box back to Atari so to speak. Absolutely one of the stupidest top 10 ideas I have seen in ages. (excluding politics) Bring back old Yahoo Messenger Now ! Even Coke learned they...

The new yahoo has taken away my ability to see if friends are online and to chat with them. Fail. And why would I use this app on my phone when I can talk and text. Another fail. You have taken communication to a new low with the new Yahoo. I am going back to the past with people calling on the phone. I would think that keeping people on a Yahoo app would be a priority but silly me, I must be wrong. I still have Skype and chat on FB so that will...

This new Yahoo messenger is stone age compared to the old. This is horrible! Please bring back the old messenger with all of the features. I had used the old messenger for years and loved all of its features. It was AWESOME!!! This so called upgrade is PATHETIC! How in the world could a company replace that old messenger with this new atrocity? I wish Yahoo luck in finding just one single person who will say that this new version is an...

New Yahoo messenger sucks!! There is nothing user friendly about this upgrade. Why did you do something like this? This or was one of the best instant messaging program out here and have used it for years. Every one of my contacts says this new one sucks. A lot of the features in the old program were great. You could see who was on and off, send picture easy. cam view easy to bring up. Not to...

Verizon wants to kill off Yahoo and anything to do with pcs by the look of it.. No one in their right mind would release this garbage and insist it is an upgrade to the legacy messenger. I bet every tech company is falling apart with laughter at just how inept Yahoo has become. If this "new and improved" messenger is the best Yahoo can come up with then it would be a mercy to put a bullet in their head and end this debacle now. There really are...

Having used Yahoo Messenger for over 10 years and cultivated many long distance friendships with it, the decision to abandon the trusted version has hit very hard. The new version is not just incredibly poor in comparison, it isn't even up to standard in the most basic of functions. The great features such as Photo Share that made the old Yahoo Messenger unique are all completely gone. Basic functions such as online statuses are laughably absent.
