Saying Goodbye is never fun, and for those of us “old-school webmasters” – we’ve had to say goodbye to many things. MSN Messenger, AIM, Google Authorship, cPanel’s X3 theme – just to name a few. Many of us grew up using these apps and platforms, and as such it’s always a sad day when we have to let them go. Today is one such day, as we add say goodbye to another throwback – Yahoo Messenger.
Yahoo has recently announced that it would discontinue the Yahoo Messenger app and service starting on July 17, 2018. After July 17th, all your chat history and logs will no longer be accessible – so if there’s anything you want to keep from there – download it now.
To download your chats, go to the downloader request site, sign in with your Yahoo ID, select a verification method, and download the archive to an email address.
Farewell old friend. It’s been fun.
