Yahoo unofficially launches its new mobile messaging application on the App Store

With no announcement in between, Yahoo has launched a new mobile messaging app on the Hong Kong App Store, according to TechCrunch.

The new mobile messaging application is called Yahoo Livetext – Video Messenger and it combines text and live video, without an audio channel or support for groups, with user-to-user communications. This application will represent a new commitment by Yahoo to recover part of the market share in the field of messaging, taking into account that at the time its traditional messenger service for desktop, Yahoo Messenger, was one of the most used in Its time, until social networks and mobile devices arrived, and with it the appearance of mobile messaging services such as WhatsApp.

According to the declarations of a person in charge to the mentioned means:

We are always experimenting with new product experiences that delight our users. We have nothing else to share at this time.

To this must be added the multiple attempts of Yahoo over the last years, all of them discarded, to have a new messaging service, added to the fact of the last acquisitions made related to the messenger, with the idea of ​​reaching a service that is different but that adapts to current circumstances. It seems that everything points to the official launch of this messenger application soon, which is in its testing phase.

Yahoo Livetext – Video Messenger is compatible with devices under version 8.0 onwards and also supports multiple languages, including Spanish, as seen in the application profile in the App Store. According to its description, Livetext transforms simple conversations into memorable, rich and fun experiences.

So if all goes well, there will soon be one more option in the mobile messaging services market, where users will then have the last word.
