Yahoo! Messenger is the mobile client for the popular search engine and email provider. It is a good, fully-featured little messaging app – but it feels deeply lacking in terms of users. At least within the people I know.

Brilliantly bygone

Beginning up Yahoo! Messenger, and injecting my old Yahoo! login credentials, I was told that my account had been locked. No doubt this is the result of five years inactivity, but still it demonstrated the issue that was to dog me via my time with the service – no one I know uses it. Despite the fact that you can now talk to either MSN or Yahoo! users with this messaging service, I know only a handful.

After reactivating my account I was greeted with some out of date spam, and… no one. Everyone was offline. A previously vibrant community was now just a collection of empty talk windows.

Usable but unusable

And, in truth, that is kind of a shame, because the Yahoo! Messenger app itself is pretty good. From within its lightly navigated menus, you can access whatever contacts you have and filter them in a multiplicity of useful ways. You can lightly switch your text’s font, style, and size, as well as add attachments – there is also the capability to take photos and movie in-app.

Being an app version of the online talk client, you can also talk to friends from your browser. Like the rest of the service, this works well, with messages delivered quickly (providing you are logged in on your device) – a fact I know because the only way I could find to test the app was to create a 2nd account to talk to myself with.

Only for the Yahoo! users

So, in truth everything is in place for people still ingrained in the MSN and Yahoo! communities to love this – you can even prod your old contacts with SMS to get them to login. But, I am guessing, if you are in this environment you most likely know all this already.

Unluckily, for me it is an empty wasteland. A reminder of an old internet life that I don’t need to resurrect because I have now found my own alternatives.
