Yahoo is all set to retire its 18-year old Messenger application on August 5. Those who are still using the old Messenger app will not to be able to access their chats after that. The development comes after the company has launched a new messaging app ,
Yahoo will concentrate on seven core products: Mail, Search, tumblr, News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyles.
Last year in December, Yahoo had launched its new Messenger app for Android,iOS, and the web.
The new app integrates features from Yahoo-owned Flickr, Tumblr and Xobni. It allows users to quickly share large batches of high-resolution images, and taps into the library at blogging platform Tumblr to let people add animated GIFs to conversations as easily as inserting emojis.
The app has also got the ability to unsend comments or images. Posts that are unsent vanish from conversation threads at the service.
Yahoo paid attention to smoothen the transition from the old to the new version of its messenger service by helping people to import contact lists and making sure that they can connect with one another regardless of which app they use.
