Yahoo! Mobile today confirms that they have enabled Facebook Chat integration in SMS Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger App for Android, and now, Mobile Web Messenger!
“The chat experience will be similar to what you are used to except that now you’ll be able to initiate conversations with your Facebook friends as well. For those who prefer to show your online presence only to your Yahoo! contacts, you can choose to sign out of Facebook Chat – You’re in control of your experience!,” Yahoo stated.
“Our goal is to make it easy for you to send and receive messages from your Facebook friends while you’re on the go, no matter which mobile device you’re using,” said the team.
To set up, simply login to Mobile Web Messenger and click on the Facebook notification banner to link your Facebook & Yahoo! accounts. Upon successful authentication, you’ll be able to see your online Facebook friends in a separate tab. Click on any one of your Facebook friends and start chatting away!
