Yahoo Messenger 9.0 is now available and integrate with the latest versions of Windows Vista SP1 and Windows XP Service Pack 3. Yahoo Messenger 9.0 brings a series of enhancements from a redesign of the graphical user interface to the Yahoo Messenger Pingbox and is ready to compete with the latest release of Windows Live Messenger.
“Yahoo Messenger Pingbox, a new application that once embedded into your blog, website or social network page, lets visitors IM you anonymously (or they can identify themselves) without needing to download or even sign into Yahoo Messenger. The good news is you’re anonymous too; visitors to your page never see your Yahoo ID. Pingbox is great for giving your site/page/profile visitors a quick way to chat with you,” revealed Sarah Bacon, Yahoo Product Manager.
There will also be a few new skins and more emoticons, as well as online video & picture viewer. In addition, the latest iteration of the Yahoo instant messaging client also delivers an import contact wizard (from Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, Orkut but also other services), games, and Yahoo updates.
