Yahoo! Messenger 2.0 Available With Video Calling

Announced last week, an update to the official Yahoo Messenger app has just been released in the App Store. The new 2.0 version brings video calling to the iPhone, thus directly competing with Apple’s FaceTime…if you’re a Yahoo! Messenger user. Among other features, multitasking and support for iOS notifications.

Check out the changelog and screenshots below, go download the app here.

Connect with your IM friends using video and voice with the newest Yahoo! Messenger app for your iPhone. Make free voice and video calls to your Messenger friends, low cost calls to land line or mobile phones, video calls—plus get new features like multitasking, instant notifications and free SMS.

I’m curious to know whether Yahoo’s video calling quality is better than Apple’s FaceTime. Messenger users, please report back!

[thanks, Benna!]
