Yahoo Messenger is getting killed off in July

Yahoo! Kills! The! Messenger!

It’s the end of an era for Yahoo Messenger, one of the first instant messaging apps on the market starting its entry in late 1998 
Today, the company announced that it would be weaving down the service on July 17 and is now redirecting users to its brand new group messaging app Squirrel.

There currently isn’t a replacement product available for Yahoo Messenger,” the company spokes. “We’re constantly experimenting with new services and apps, one of which is an invite-only group messaging app called Yahoo Squirrel (currently in beta).” 
Squirrel is a new group messaging App that’s just like Slack but made by Yahoo, started testing last month and we’ll leave it at that you can request access to the beta here.

Meanwhile, this latest announcement further notes that users will have six months to download their chat history from Yahoo Messenger; you can find more about this here. While users can download the data to your device, it appears that porting the data backup history to another app won’t be an option.

The company also spokes that, 
“We know we have many loyal fans who have used Yahoo Messenger since its beginning as one of the first chat apps of its kind,” it notes. “As the communications landscape continues to change over, we’re focusing on building and introducing new, exciting communications tools that better fit consumer needs.”


Alongside that, the company, as a part of Oath, is now owned by Verizon, the telecoms behemoth. Ironically, it’s the telcos of the world whose revenues have been cannibalized in part by over-the-top messaging services, although Yahoo Messenger’s demise is far likely less related to that, considering that it is not one of the most popular services on the market today.
