Yahoo iPhone app - Video calling

Yahoo has just released the new version of Yahoo messenger iPhone app just as we had expected.

Yahoo Messenger 2.0 will allow users to make video calls like FaceTime over Wi-Fi and 3G. It also enables video calling to other users logged on to Yahoo messenger either on a PC, iPhone or Android smartphones.

The new version of the iPhone app also allows users to make low cost voice calls and is iOS 4 multitasking enabled so users will be able to finally run in the background.

Here are some of the new features introduced in Yahoo Messenger 2.0:

• Video calls: Use Yahoo! Messenger to make video calls and stream live video one-to-one
• Voice calls: Make free voice calls to your Yahoo! Messenger friends
• Low cost voice calls: Talk to your friends on their landline or mobile phone, and make low cost international calls with Yahoo! Voice Phone Out account.
• Multitasking: Work with other iPhone apps while Yahoo! Messenger runs in the background

The video calling feature is only available to iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users on iOS 4.1.

Meanwhile, the ability to make voice calls is only available to to premium users in US, France, Germany, Spain and Singapore.

The ability to make voice calls with users on the iPhone, Android smartphones and anyone using Yahoo messenger on the PC could transform it into one of the killer iPhone apps on the App store, especially when you consider that Yahoo Messenger has 80 million users worldwide.

You can download Yahoo Messenger 2.0 from the App Store using this iTunes link.

    How does one clear the Yahoo Messenger voice call log for Yahoo Messenger 2.0? It appears like it is a permanent record of all calls made including incorrect numbers entered from the keypad.

    That is an interesting question. Why did you enter the number incorrectly?
