"Yahoo! Messenger gets video and voice"

Reviewed by / Nov 05, 2012

Yahoo! Messenger Plugin enables voice and video calls in the Yahoo! Messenger app

Bear in mind that this isn’t a “launchable” app but a plug-in, which means that it requires Yahoo! Messenger app installed on your device.

This plug-in adds two important features that default Yahoo! Messenger Android app didn’t bring by default: voice and video calls. Although voice calls work pretty good, we’ve noticed some issue on video calls, specially concerning volume. Developers alert that they’re working on it (remember that this is a beta version). Video is only supported on Android OS 2.2+.

In order to call just press the menu button in a messenger conversation and tap the voice or video option. Such easy.

Developer's original description available here
This plug-in enables voice and video calls in the Yahoo! Messenger app

********* IMPORTANT *********
1. This is not a launchable app on its own, you need to install Yahoo! Messenger to enable the call features

2. To call, press the menu button in a Messenger conversation and tap the voice or video option

3. Video is only supported on Android OS 2.2+ (except for MyTouch 4G & EVO 4G where OS 2.3+ is required)

4. Yahoo! Messenger 1.5 and higher

5. The other user needs to use Yahoo! Messenger for Android, iPhone or Windows PC

Video calling is in beta. We are aware of incoming call volume issues and we will be addressing those soon. Help us improve the product by providing feedback and specific failed scenarios with device information to: androidimfeedback@yahoo.com. Thanks!
