Yahoo! Messenger for mobile

Friend obsessed

Don’t want to leave your IM friends? You don’t have to. Sign into Yahoo! Messenger on your phone and keep the conversation going for as long as you want. Send a message, respond, change your status, view emoticons, photos or links – whatever you would do from your desktop, you can do from almost any phone.

Relax. All your conversations come with you

Head to the gym. Go to the beach. Wait for the train. You’ll get every message, the instant it arrives. Make yourself available, busy, or invisible; you’ll still know what’s going on. So, get out. Stay connected.

  • No setup necessary: Just click the Mail link from the Yahoo! Homepage or enter m.yahoo.com/messenger into the mobile browser on your phone and you’ve got Yahoo! Messenger.
  • Enhanced look & feel, simplified navigation: A new look and feel with simplified navigation lets you get to Yahoo! Messenger features in one simple step.
  • Instant messaging to Yahoo! Messenger contacts: Message your friends reliably in real-time.
  • Status Updates: Access your friends’ availability ('Available' or 'Offline') or custom status messages (‘Back in 5 mins’) and update your own in real time.
  • Personalise: Tailor your experience with avatars and emoticons.
