Does anyone use Yahoo Messenger any more?


As Yahoo Messenger which was the most pioneering messaging app is officially dead now; no one can use Yahoo Messenger any more!

Yes, that’s true! The Yahoo Messenger chat application that had changed the way users communicated with each other over the Internet is not available for further use. Unfortunately, Yahoo users witnessed this sad incident of Yahoo Messenger going away in front of their eyes in the year 2017.

Launched way back in the year 1998 BY Jerry Yang and David Filo, the Yahoo Messenger offers the features for Yahoo users to send, text, videos, GIFs, emoticons and files, etc to each other without paying anything at all for the same.

The reasons behind Yahoo Messenger’s shut down: Though the app managed quite well to run smoothly for a long period of 20 years; but, with the coming of even better technology-based apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, and Snapchat, etc, it saw a decline in the number of its users which later finally lead to its shut-down. The reason behind its shutdown was also that Yahoo wants to divert the time and resources to focus completely on other communication Yahoo tools.

However, to cheer up your mood, let me tell you that there’s various other alternatives app to Yahoo Messenger that you can use in place of Yahoo Messenger as they also offer similar features or for that matter even better features. So, let’s have a look at these best Yahoo Messenger alternatives app names:
