This app is THE BEST, but you know what would make it better? 4/5
I love this app! It's my most used application on my phone. But it would be really nice if you could set a background in the chat. Not the cover photo but a background. That would just be amazing and I've wanted the feature for a long time! Please contemplate adding that or something like it. Also I'm sick of being logged out over and over again, it tells me I'm not signed in and the app crashes, I'm not sure if it's a bug but it's very aggravating. I hope you guys can get it fixed.........Best, 707
I would give it a 0.... 1/5
Why on earth is the point since they got rid of chat rooms?
What happened to the old chat rooms where you can talk to local people

Waste of time 1/5
By Tulane king
It’s doesn’t even download.
No sound notifications. Please fix. 3/5
App will NOT access 1/5
Just set up a messenger account and downloaded this app for new iPad 10.5 (2017)........but, get error message that says “try again”......garbage app. No wonder yahoo has had their woes and cannot stay competitive in the arena of IT!!
can not log on, always says please try again later 1/5
I recently opened a yahoo mail account and then downloaded the mail and messenger apps, the mail app works fine but the messenger doesn’t allow me to log on at all, kind of disappointing. I hope you are able to fix this soon.
I can’t even get on 1/5
It keeps giving me a Try Again on the open screen. Then it gives me an error message. Stating there was a problem activating your account
Unsatisfied customer 1/5
I like the old version better. The new one is just boring and dead. I’ve been a very loyal YM customer for 12+years. But I’m deleting you now and look for a much better reliable messenger to connect to my love ones anywhere in the world ☹️
Don't waste your time 1/5
The chat rooms are gone! How are you going to meet new people. What a joke!
Don't even waste your time. There is no contact list, conversations are all over the place. People are not receiving messages from me. The whole thing is awful! Yahoo doesn't care, they were bought by Verizon.
AND it’s not working properly after the iOS 11 update even though they did a fix for it.
Bring back the chat rooms 5/5
Please bring back the chat rooms .. they were so much fun !!
Where are the emojis??? 1/5
Where are all the old animated emojis??? That was one of the best parts of Yahoo Messenger!
Not working 1/5
What's going on with this app?! It's not working at all......please update as soon as possible
Terrible update 1/5
App will no longer open.
No landscape and no older iOS support 1/5
By TheTruth...so there.
The best apps based on text interface support landscape on the phones.
This does not and its awkward to use as a result.
A large company such as Yahoo can certainly afford the development for multiple screen resolutions to support landscape mode AND support older iOS devices.
On the upside, my notifications seem to work just fine.
Fake positive reviews 1/5
No free messenger to landline calls. App is redundant. Time for yahoo to retire this app. It's pointless.
Not cool 1/5
Not cool at all that you guys kicked all of us out that do not have iPads that will update to the iOS 10. Been a user for years, now denied to even have the app. First took messenger away from PC. Now this? I can't afford a new iPad just so I can update to current iOS.
The older iPads 2/5
I really enjoy this app but it says I need 10.0 update for my iPad. My iPad says I am up to date with version 9.3.3 please fix miss my friends
Touch ID 1/5
I never use touch id for app access. This is only option to access msgr. Please remove.
Not Receiving Notifications 2/5
Have not been receiving notifications of new messages since late last week. Please look into this and fix asap.
Current Update - no notifications 4/5
I love this app, but I have noticed that since the update neither the PC version or the app version provide notifications as they did before. Please fix!!!
Alert notifications not working please fix
No notifications 1/5
Don't get notifications since the update, it makes this app useless
Can't get notifications from contacts in the latest version of messenger. 1/5
Needs to be fixed.
Doesn't give me notifications 3/5
This latest update sometimes gives me notifications and other times it doesn't Please fix this.
Since update 2/5
No longer receiving notifications. 😕
By lpj9 😘😋😎
Every time I put in my email or phone number it doesn't it's so frustrating I recommend that u do not get this u will be totally stressed worst app ever👎🏾😾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾😤😠😡👿👿👿👿
Great App 5/5
I like this app because you can text and call for free without having a phone number only an email. Great for people who cant afford T-Mobile, Verizon, etc
Can't log in to accounts now 1/5
Crashes every time I try to access my accounts... tried reinstalling with same results.
Liked the old yahoo im better 3/5
This is not user friendly and I don't hardly use it as much as I did!! Hope they change some things otherwise I won't use it at all. 😔
Only getting worse - Old contacts have been removed! 1/5
This has only gotten worse. It's useless. I've decided it's so bad I'm removing it. It's just a fancy text messaging app now.
Bring back the original please. Where's the webcam option, Why can't I log off of this without logging off of email. Please fix this app. Why did you have to downgrade this from the original. You took away everything that people like to add useless features like gifs
By David G J
Does not work like the old messenger not worth downloading
Simple but great 5/5
By Croweater for life
It's streamline and easy to use. I'm eager to see what else will be added in the future. But I hope some of the simplicity stays.
By World B. Free
Latest update broke my push notifications. Kind of the point of this app to receive those.
Disappointing features 1/5
This app needs a lot of work! The primary feature they need to add is allowing users to see when someone on the friends list is online or not. This is one of the most basic/essential functions of any messenger. I was actually shocked when I realized I couldn't tell if someone is online. The FAQ section says it doesn't do this because it functions more like Facebook messenger. Only issue with that is that Facebook messenger shows who is available. One of the worst messenger apps I've used.
I miss the old yahoo messenger 1/5
Really really miss the old yahoo messengers, it used to be my fav messagings apps, now its gone
Old Buddy List is MIA! 1/5
My old buddy list is completely missing and this new Messenger is completely worthless.
Since update all it does is crash on the iPhone 1/5
Do not update do not update constantly crashing on the iPhone when using voice text messaging
UPDATE IS TERRIBLE! 1/5
App will not let me send more than a couple of messages and it closes down and I have to start over. This was not happening at all in the previous version. Used to be fine but now is a completely frustrating experience. FIX THIS NOW YAHOO! I have tried deleting and reinstalling and it has not helped at all.
Death of a former friend 1/5
This app used to be a great friend of mine, it let me keep in touch with friends around the world. It is now currently useless. Unusable garbage is what they have turned my former friend into.
RIP Yahoo Messenger
Yahoo Messenger 4/5
Love this app I've had a couple problems but otherwise it's a great Way to communicate with others
Verizon know better not to buy Yahoo. Verizon is making the biggest mistake ever. Back off Verizon. Yahoo need to stay being a website. Verizon is a huge joke. Stay away Verizon and get a life. I love using yahoo mail. Verizon is a dumb stupid name. I hope Verizon goes bankrupt because of there poor decision. Yahoo needs another 10 year on the internet.
Last update 1/5
Can't sign out of app since last update.
What have you done? 1/5
No online indicator? No way to add/remove contacts? No more voice/video chatting?No way to set your own online status anymore AND now asking for our phone numbers?? Why???
Yahoo messenger used to be pretty awesome when it had all the old features now it's essentially a glorified texting app. I can do that already! Bring back the old features that made this app awesome, now it's pointless.
I got to say it does the job to send a message but I wish you could voice call like the old one or video chat
