Yahoo messenger has been shut after running for 20 years, on July 17, 2018. But all those kids of 90’s who used the messenger must be felling nostalgic, as it was one of the source of communication for the kids during that time. According to reports, users will have six months to download their chat history, and those who try to use Yahoo Messenger today will be redirected to the new group messaging app Squirrel.
In this new age of Whatsapp and Facebook Yahoo Messenger had lost its identity, and Twitter users are sharing their experience and recalling those days.
Yahoo Messenger was launched in 1998. In a statement on their website, Yahoo said that Messenger was going away because “as the communications landscape continues to change over, we’re focusing on building and introducing new, exciting communications tools that better fit consumer needs.”
