Softpedia Editor's Review for Y! Messenger Plus
Y! Messenger Plus will add more functions to Yahoo Messenger !
Written by Bogdan Popa on June 25th, 2012
Yahoo! Messenger is already a full-featured instant messaging client, but those who need even more than that can always turn to Y! Messenger Plus.
This application could come in very handy when trying to enable some features in Yahoo! Messenger and, as long as you're a fan of this online chat tool, you will find these quite useful.
Y! Messenger Plus installs and runs in a couple of seconds, but the full powers of the app reside in a configuration wizard that loads once you end the setup process.
The program is pretty easy to use because you just have to check the options you want and click OK. You can thus introduce the official chat-rooms into Yahoo Messenger, add Inside Yahoo shortcuts and searches, implement In English emotions, add Y! Bar buttons into the chatting window and many more.
An important tweak you can apply from the window of the configuration wizard of Yahoo! Messenger Plus is transferring the control of the messenger, Yahoo! Tunnel and other plugins to Y! Pilot. The program also brings with some interface tweaks for the messenger enabling you to modify the skins or themes.
Even if it was originally designed for Yahoo! Messenger versions up to 7.0, we've tested the application with newer releases of the instant messaging client and everything worked fine.
All things considered, if you're indeed a Yahoo! Messenger fan and you want to take the most out of the application, Y! Messenger Plus is a really handy tool. Otherwise, it can be no more than your regular chat program add-on.
