            • 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.

                • 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?

                        • Bring back animated emojis

                          Talking about the emojis that would literally roll their eyes, etc. And the ones that would have sound like the breaking board that would say "Oh snap" Make these available in Android.

                            • The worst Yahoo Messenger Ever

                              If we can not find out who is online, what is the use of such a messenger? If it should be like SMS on mobile phones, then we would be using mobiles instead of messenger. Online chat messenger has to provide facility of finding out who is online right now. Not all the contacts in messenger are our real friends whoes mobile numbers will be with us. Please understand it and bring back the feature of showing online status of contacts in messenger in Yahoo Messenger ASAP.

                                  • 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.
