Early 2016, Yahoo outlined a plan for streamlining the business and focusing their strengths across seven core consumer products: Mail, Search, Tumblr, News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyles. More than 1 billion users uses Yahoo services daily.
In December of 2015, Yahoo announced a brand new Yahoo Messenger for mobile, the Web and in Yahoo Mail on the desktop, which is built on a new modern platform. This complete revamp brings users an incredibly fast, beautiful and smart way to send – and unsend – messages, photos and animated GIFs in 1:1 and group conversations. While today we provide basic inter-operation between the legacy product and the new Messenger, Yahoo asks all of Yahoo messenger users to complete their transition to the new Yahoo Messenger. Yahoo is killing the Old Yahoo Messenger app on August 5. Hope you guys remember Yahoo Messenger, which we use to do lots of text, voice and Video chats. Later most of the users shifted to Gtalk then now to WhatsApp.
