  6. Put a sound back on messenger so you know when womeone is trying to reach you. Do not like the new messenger. Also need to be able to use

    Put sound feature on new messenger so you know when someone is trying to reach you. Also put feature to use camera & voice on it. New messenger stinks. Bring back the old or improve the new.

  7. Video and voice chat

    Why did you do away with the video chat services, both text and voice and when will those features be added back. That was the best feature in yahoo messenger. I always found it very pleasant to be able to see those with whom I was chatting and now those wonderful features which prompted me to want to use yahoo messenger in the first place are gone.

  9. Unique Customisation! And singular Chat screens!

    The old MSN/Yahoo Messenger layouts were GREAT! Especially in terms of being able to pick font/colour and see each chat as a single screen.And in turn being able to choose the backgrounds and colours of the chat window for each chat, giving each person you spoke to a unique visual experience on the screen. The customisation of being able to choose the sounds of each message was wonderful as well. I hate the new boring bubble text layout of every single IM service available. The new Yahoo Messenger is almost IDENTICAL to Facebook Messenger which is a real downer. Customisation…

  10. NEW YAHOO MESSENGER SUCKS!!!

    How dare you call this a messenger, I have had this since the day I had to download it, because you said the old one wasn't going to work after a certain date. But since that date, I haven't even seen anyone online. So either this new Yahoo messenger doesn't work, or you got rid of the ability to see when a friend is online. Either way this is the worse Messenger program I have seen, and haven't been able to use since downloading. Bring back the old style messenger like most of the other messenger programs are like. And…

  16. Emoticons

    The emoticons in Desktop and Web version definitely must be bigger. And Yahoo must create their own icons and not to use the system ones because they are different for every operating system.

  17. In the old messenger we were able to have a real time video chat. Why is this not available with this version?

    The old version allowed us to have a real time video chat with friends. Why is that not available with this new version?

  20. Please bring back old messenger...or at least add features

    Please bring back old messenger...or at least add some features back

    Yahoo i hope you read this...everyone is asking for the old program back

    if you could even be able to bring back some key features i think it would make a world of difference

    such as VIDEO CALLING...BEING INVISIBLE...and STEALTH SETTINGS so i am only visible to select people

    the change was to much to fast...please many people if not all use the above listed features...and i never know when friends are online no bolding of the name or icon or anything...so i gotta guess if their online
