    How many messaging apps do you have on your phone? Go on, take a look. We’ll wait…

    Chances are, you might have Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Skype, and/or Viber, four of the most popular messaging apps currently on the market. But Yahoo wants to become a bigger player in this space, so the company has launched the next evolution of its Messaging app, designed to make the overall experience faster and more “modern.”

    Jeff Bonforte, Yahoo’s senior vice president of communication products and engineering, said that users are looking for services that are quick and easy to use to connect with their friends, families, and colleagues. And while this latest iteration lacks the bells and whistles it might have needed to differentiate itself from the current popular apps, behind-the-scenes improvements in Yahoo Messenger may at least give it a chance of stacking up against those at the grown-up table.

    Honestly, I think the last time I have used Yahoo Messenger was way back 2010. And I have never opened my Yahoo Messenger account since then. Well, I don't think it's too late for them to launch a new messenger app. They just have got to make sure it has got some awesome features so that people would be interested in utilizing it.
