  1. Download Conversation

    Please give us an option to download an entire conversation from the archive (that is currently not available anymore). Many of us have great memories with the old Y!M where we chat with friends everyday, and some of us want to keep those memories. So, please give us an option to request an entire conversation that we had with another contact from the system. I'm sure many people will love it and I think it's been requested for a while now.

  5. I don’t have a option to update my settings on some in and review the user settings

    I think you should have a link for updating your email account from your phone app instead of having to keep logging in your account to get to your settings to update your account because you don’t get the option of clicking agree. You only get the option to keep logging in

  6. release Old Yahoo! Messager as Open Source

    A fair number of people believe there is still considerable value in the previous incarnations of Yahoo! Messenger. Publishing the source code under an open source or free software license would allow its remaining value to at least be preserved.

    There are a number of potential paths an open development community could take a project like that.

    1. Retooled to connect to existing/remaining Yahoo! services and other open networks like XMPP.
    2. partially integrated with alternative services to replace deprecated ones (i.e. IRC to replace chat).
    3. Replication of discontinued services like file sharing, webcams, and possibly even legacy photo…

  8. Email notification of a new message in Yahoo Messenger?

    Would it be possible to receive a notification in Yahoo Mail when someone sends you a message in Yahoo Messenger? Something like this used to happen before the new independant browser version of Messenger was launched. I thought it did to start with - or have I missed a setting?

  10. More background photos, take ideas from facebook, hotmail, gmail and other frontline competitors.

    Simply take ideas from other competitors and apply it for free otherwise it will be a failure for already suffering yahoo products. The same applies for other products as well. Also allow multiple forwards system as sify which google could not replicate.

  13. Tons of things need to improve...

    First and foremost, messages are delayed immensely across every platform. It doesn't matter if it's Messenger in Mail, the PC app, Android or iOS, sometimes messages aren't received until an hour or more after they were sent out. They are meant to be INSTANT messages, nothing about waiting an hour is "instant".

    Secondly, there's no way to see if a user is online or signed in. While I can understand if this is meant to mimic text messaging, I could see if my text had been delivered and/or seen (which relates back to my first issue).

    Third, the lack of…

  14. Put back IM chat conversation as on one of the search options in the yahoo Inbox

    I had three customized Smart View folders in the Inbox of my email address to pull yahoo IM Chat conversation in the Inbox of this email address covering the period from May 2013 thru May 2015. It was user friendly to read and print in a readable format of messenger conversation from the Smart view of Yahoo mail. The display was nicely formatted with date and time on the top right hand corner of yahoo IM chat page and down the page timelines and corresponding chat conversations. I have printed copy of these conversations right from the INBOX of the…

  15. Scroll to end button

    This is absolutely insane that the conversation keeps scrolling up instead of automatically skipping to the last message!
