Team review

" Easiest way to chat and share. "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 8 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible with most Android devices running on.

Its weight is light enough, less than ten MB (7 MB exactly) are needed to save to their device and use it.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an indispensable application. More than five million people already use. Do not hesitate to get it back. Any device (smartphone or tablet) must possess.

Positive review Its better now by anonym
If anyone read my last review of yahoo messenger it was borne out of pure frustration. Well I have communicated with yahoo and they have fixed the problems (I think) But they did respond promptly to my mails. It seems to be working now. 4/5
Negative review Can't connect to yahoo server?? It's been 24 hours!! by anonym
This used to be my main messenger back in 03.. reinstalled the other day but keep on getting a cannot connect to yahoo server message. Disappointed. 1/5
Negative review Awful update by anonym
The layout is ok but thw omder version was much better. Miss the option to be invisible. Why have to option to block someone when their messages still reach you, it's very annoying! We should be able to share gifs & video clips from outside sources, I have not been able to share all gifs when I save them to my phone they are not available as an option to share when trying to select them 2/5

Negative review Rubbing salt on the wound by anonym
Great. Server is down.... Any other problems left????? No way of knowing online or offline. Messages dont come on time have to wait to c them if any. Sending photos not working. Thanks TEAM YAHOO FOR RUINING YAHOO MESSENGER :'( :'( :@ 1/5
I used to LOVE this App. I told everyone to use it BUT now I HATE THIS APP. THE LAYOUT IS BORING and it says you can delete but what's the point of deleting when it only deletes on your side the person your texting to still receives your text you deleted. I want the old layout back . I want to know when and who is online. No way this is a good App. Hate it . Bring the old app back plus why did you take it off the tablet?? Can't instait on the tablet at all . Also the serves are down over 24 hours !! 1/5

Negative review This update blows! by anonym
New update will not let you sign in. Yahoo, you keep getting worse with every update! About to delete this lame and screwed up now!! 1/5
Negative review Won't work by anonym
This app won't work without a phone # Tried to use my established google voice #, won't let me. Don't trust yahoo to associate any personal info with them. This app sucks!!! The app Trillian works with your yahoo screen name. You can use your original contact list and chat as normal. No need to use the upgraded app. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Ever since the update last night cannot sign into my account then they wonder why they are losing money this app sucks now I think the ceo should be fired 1/5
Negative review Sucks by anonym
Friends deleted.. Constantly kicking me out saying cannot connect to Yahoo's server. Never had issues with old version. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
A new phone so had to download the latest messenger version. It is AWFUL and NONFUNCTIONING. I was able to log in once. And liked nothing! Not who's online and not, cant find the voice and video options if they still exist? Now, all it says is "can't connect to server". Such a large successful company to end up at such a disgraceful point. You would think this was a new program created by novices. 1/5
Negative review Please explain what's going on! by anonym
This is my second review since the first update back in January. Obviously that update was a total waste and now this new update is even worst. Are you trying to deliberately lose ALL your customers? Who ever had this idea in the first place should be let go for not understanding how to do their job correctly and realize that because of their failure to do a decent upgrade, people have lost valuable messages from those both on a personal and professional level. Correct it or forget it. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Please please bring back the old version. This apps can't send text msgs to ur yahoo contact with phone #. This is so stupid. Old yahoo.messenger is the best. I can't sign in now. It says not enough storage space. Though I didn't stored anything on it. Stupid, stupid, stupid apps ever 1/5
Positive review Yea!! You fixed it! by anonym
Wow! Thank you soooo much for fixing the app from my request!!! Can u tell me why when I send pics to my contacts, ad they press to Accept, it denies them to get it?...they are on desktops, I am on Android. 5/5
Negative review Total crap by anonym
I loaded the app and guess what ? It doesn't work ! Now I have lost the use of messages on my phone . What a great idea yahoo 1/5
Negative review How does each upgrade get worse??? by anonym
Since the new update, I can not log in. This is how I communicate with my boyfriend overseas and it's very disappointing. This has to be the worse update ever. And who uses GIFS? Stop updating. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
Theres not many features and havent been able to connect for the last 24 hours...fix it and ill give a better rating 1/5
Positive review Looking for zjwilliams by anonym
I'm keeping this app on my phone because I'm looking for a loved one and yahoo was our last method of communication about two years ago. Yahoo deleted all of my contacts during the upgrade and I'm hoping another download to my new phone brings them back. Z, if you see this message by chance... Email me. Or hit me up on yahoo messenger, nothing has changed. Oh, the app works fine, I wish there were chatrooms though. 5/5
Negative review Awful by anonym
The old one was better. Can't use the app on my phone says servers down. I very unhappy. What is the update for this? 2/5
Negative review Disappointed by anonym
Since the new update, the one that changed everything, yahoo messenger has been nothing but trouble. Why fix it if it ain't broke?? I used this app daily, now I'm lucky if it allows me to just sign in on a daily basis...using it is another story. 1/5
Negative review Worse than ever by anonym
Hey what gives people? The app was just OK but now it's totally useless. OK here are the problems; 1. Can't see my contact list 2. I dunno who's online 3. The app is broken to the core 4. I can't even log in. WTF?! 1/5
Negative review Worse of the worse by anonym

Negative review by anonym
New version sucks. Another update. Another circle jerk. Doesn't work. Do you not test these updates before you release them? Bring back the old version. Then just stop. 1/5
Negative review Fix the problems by anonym
Deleted all my contacts, can't go invisible, can't see who's on and not on... Just a really crappy update. Has potential, but old format was better. 1/5
Negative review Good for nothing by anonym
You're supposed to improve a product when a new version comes out, not just list contacts (or delete them), lose the ability to change your status and never know who's actually online! What a waste of programming talent by trying to be like everyone else. You guys used to be set apart from the rest, now this is just crap. Uninstalled! Don't even deserve 1 star. 1/5
Neutral review Messenger by anonym

Negative review Horrible update by anonym
Horrible update, it worked good before but after the last big update it screwed it over, I barely get messages anymore, wish you would return it to how it was, and just stopped working all together, won't even let me sign in. 1/5
Negative review Never works!! by anonym
I get ym's from other people but they never get mine back. I'm constantly Having to reinstalling the app just to get one message through!! Would of put no stars but have to chose one to rate the app! Also I know I won't get any reply from support so I don't know why I even bothered rating this app!! YM has been around a long time it should work hands down 1/5
Negative review bring back the old version!!! everyone is for the old version by anonym
i use this app to keep in touch to loved ones who is thousands of miles away. the new update ruined everything.. i could hardly received messages and wouldn't deliver some messages. i can't even see who's on. the old version was even better.. you should fix this or better bring be back the old version as everyone's begging for it.. you can see, no one like the new update. i've been using yahoo for 10 years.. you are really pushing people to use other apps. we'd be very happy if you'll bring back the old YM 1/5
Negative review Please fix the yahoo messenger on Android Thanks. Can't log in by anonym
Messenger is not signing in or open and I only received half of my message this messenger is SUCKS? and I think everyone is agreed with me and thinking same thing it is Bullshitt?? 1/5
Negative review New Glossy Look... Empty Inside by anonym
I'll be straight up... Late to the game Yahoo... The app is short on features, no calling, either audio or video. The UI though sleek in appearance is not very user friendly and inefficient in use of space. How hard could it be to get it right Yahoo? 2/5
Negative review Gets worse by anonym
Just when I thought the new version couldn't get any worse, it does. Now I can't even log in. Somebody at Yahoo needs to lose their job over this abortion of an app 1/5
Neutral review Iphone Yahoo is Much better by anonym
The iPhone yahoo messenger is much much better, very stable and notifications works awesome but here notification does not work effectively as I fond many times after I open the app that I received messages but it did not show any any notification on my phone screen or phone notifications area. 3/5
Negative review New version is totally useless! by anonym
I use yahoo messenger on pc, tablet, and the phone to communicate with coworkers. The newest version for my phone has absolutely no correlation or features to the pc app. You can't change status or put up a status note. You can't see the groups you have assigned contacts to from the pc app on the mobile app. Old version worked just like the pc app and using the two different devices was no problem and seemed seamless. 1/5
Negative review Cannot Connect by anonym
Getting the cannot connect to yahoo servers message for over 12 hours. I have yet to see a single response from Yahoo. Extremely disappointed to say the least. 1/5
Negative review This new app SUCKS! by anonym
Taking forever for my contacts to "Update". What the hell are you doing Yahoo? Keep this up, and your company will fall. 1/5
