Yahoo Messenger V.9 on Beta

Yahoo is now releasing the latest version of their popular messaging software. There really is nothing revolutionary new on this new version but there you will see a few good additions on it.

You can now add embed objects - such as movies, images, and maps - into chat conversations. Also handy: you can synchronize the playback of online videos and share Flickr photos in a slideshow, although only with one friend at a time.

Yahoo has also redesigned the user interface of Messenger’s friends list, bumped up file transfer limits to 2GB per-file, begun automatically scanning transfered files with Norton AntiVirus, added call forwarding to its VoIP offering, and designed new skins. Users can now send SMS messages to their friends’ cell phones with the desktop client. And Messenger has been localized for six new markets - the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India (in Hindi), and Vietnam - raising the sum of localized versions to 25.
