What is Yahoo Messenger?

Yahoo Messenger, otherwise known as YM, YIM, or Y!M, is an instant messaging client powered by Yahoo Networks and is one of the most well-known, ubiquitous and long-standing IM clients around the world. First launched in 1998 as Yahoo Pager, it has undergone several, some drastic, changes since then and has been wildly successful in pioneering the face of the IM industry. Among the features that have been standard in instant messaging clients now is the use of "Buzzing" to call the attention of the other party in an IM chat session, the use of music status updates, customizable Yahoo avatars, and the IMvironments, or interactive skins exclusive to the Yahoo Messenger client, that can be changed and switched at ease.

Users can sign into Yahoo Messenger using their Yahoo account, which is the central ID that can access other Yahoo services such as Mail, Answers, and related content. This IM client has VoIP ability like Skype, can connect to Yahoo Chat Rooms, file transfers, mobile phone calling and texting, and webcam calling. Optionally, the client also includes Yahoo Music Radio, where users can listen for free to streaming music and use the currently-playing song as their status.
