Yahoo! Messenger

Yahoo! Mail is an email service that is offered for free and is used by more than 300 million people around the world. Since users mostly desire real-time communication and email is not the best way to achieve that, Yahoo! also provides an instant messaging client. Yahoo! Messenger is an application that provides a diverse set of options and features to chat with your friends comfortably.

Yahoo! Messenger allows you not only to chat with your friends by text, but you can also establish voice sessions, share live video over web-cam, and if your friend has Yahoo! Messenger installed in his smart-phone, you can also send him text messages or call him from your computer. What is more: this application is also useful for voice conferencing, since it allows multiple users join a single conversation.

Yahoo! Messenger also makes it easy to share files of up to 2GB, like images or songs and even movies. Next to that, you can chat with your friends who use other IM clients, like Windows Live Messenger for example. Thanks to its friendly interface, you can easily organize your friends in groups, edit address books, and even check your Yahoo! Email account. It even provides easy access to a lot of free -and paid- online radio stations by installing the Yahoo! Music Radio plug-in, that automatically integrates in the application's window.
