Pros They have cleaned up the voice communication to sound like you are on the phone!!! Way Cool!
Cons Better notification for new voice mail
Summary No-body does it better than yahoo. Keep up the really good work guys. We love you out here.
Pros not good and all bad
Cons Consumes Huge Memory
Summary New Yahoo beta consumes huge memory and worst of all no user rooms, you cant even call outside yahoo, how can this be called internet phone? perhaps yahoo should re write this to internet voice sucks.
Pros VoIP for brodband users, drag and drop photo\file share
Cons does not have voice for dial up users?
Summary in yahoo messenger 6.0 there was option to talk with anyone by option of voice now it is GONE??? and we have now VoiP that does not support dial up users and if you do it does not allow you to call anyone i had to install yahoo messenger 6.0 now!!!. does not work that way.
Pros Loaded with features that make IM'ing and communicating a joy, if not an addiction.
Cons Hard to think of any; they could have added a way to create your own emoticons, as with MSN Messenger.
Summary The new features dazzle and thrill. To voice with a contact, you make a 'call.' The length of the conversation is displayed as you speak. I had a clear conversation with a contact in Taiwan (I'm in Calif, on a dial-up connection at that!)If your contact does not answer or is offline, you can leave a recorded message up to 2 minutes long. When you log on, a symbol at the bottom of the main window indicates if any contact has left a voice message for you. Quality of the recorded messages is very good. In the same window, one can view your complete call history, both incoming and outgoing, to/from whom and when. You can delete any messages you wish, or just leave them for repeated playing. When a contact attempts to call you, a .wav file plays, sounding just like a real phone. You can import more 'ringing' files or create your own sounds; best yet, you can assign a unique ring to each of your contacts, so if you are in another room and hear a ring, you can identify the caller then and there. Marvelous! The new file-sending system is outstanding; just drag a file such as a .jpg into the chat window and sending commences; a preview of the pic appears, as in MSN Messenger, with a progress bar. To share photos, selecting the appropriate tab opens a nice window, into which you can drag a photo, or browse to the file as with the old way. Your contact can then show you his/her pic, and if you like, you can make this photo your display pic with 2 clicks. You want to point out a particular face in your family photo? You can tell Yahoo to make a pointer appear, and move it to point out your Aunt Harriet; your contact will see the same pointer move on his/her Photo window! One other nice addition is when you hover your mouse cursor over your contact, a panel appears with lots of contact info, including your current stealth setting set for that particular contact; if this contact is online, his/her display pic appears in large-thumbnail format. So, Yahoo has many new features, and has raised the bar for IM's.
Pros Love the Voice Mail
Cons No Notification Of New Voicemail!
Summary Still the easiest and most feature rich messenger out there...and I have used them all.Rock on Yahoo!
