    Free worldwide calls.
    Use Yahoo! Messenger to call and talk over the Internet just like you're on the phone. All you need is a headset, or a microphone and speakers. It's that easy - just click the 'Call' button. If no one's there, leave a voicemail!
    You can also get much better sound quality than regular phone lines. Try it out - you and your friends will really hear a difference.


    Drag-and-drop photos
    Need something to talk about? Just drag and drop pictures into your IM window to share them with your friends.

    Find, add, share friends...
    It's easier than ever to add and invite friends to Messenger. You can even send your contact information to a friend's Address Book.

    This version also includes :

    * Drag-and-drop file transfer

    * Custom ring tones

    * Support for USB headsets

    * Contact cards for one-click communication and access to Address Book

    * Easier access to Yahoo! Search

    * Indicators for new Yahoo! Mail, new voicemail and updated Yahoo 360° content

    * New tabs for Yahoo! Buzz Index and Entertainment Tonight

    WORLDWIDE calls is just a abstraction...
    Its basically IP2IP or say PC2PC call....and not PC2Phone...
    I bet, SKYPE is much better for such calls....

    Rest, there are no other big changes in it..
    Its basically the same stuff... but looking at the Messenger Wars.. i guess, we would be getting a new messenger version every 2months from yahoo and msn...

    This version is quite unstable at the moment... Use it at your risk... I experienced few crashes with it.

    REgards,
    Zooom..!!

    then use it for some purpose ... rather than just keeping it online and sending text messages ...
    i use a winamp plugin ... the dll connects to yahoo messenger ... in the prev versions of ymsngr nothing happened ... now the dll is making ymsngr crash ...

    more so, most of the features offered were there in the earlier versions also (if u keep updating your messenger regularly then u'll know) ...

    second thing: how much of your Processor and RAM do use actuallly ... my work forces me to suck n squeeze every bit of the available processor resources and RAM ...

    nik_bokacheley :help: I'm a mad :sadbye:

    For me it crashed a number of times.....
    Other drawbacks............>>
    People having Y! messenger 7 can't send files using p2p network..to those having Y~ messenger 6 or lower versions.. SO file transfer only works for those who have both y! messenger 7..
    Follow user option is removed..

    Good point-->>
    Spam report has been added.. SO you can say buh bye to the BOTS...

    I was one of the beta testers for this yahoo messenger, my bro works in yahoo.

    The thing is nothing but VoIP , that is Voice over IP and its nothing new. Yes Skype and Teamspeak are better options since they are meant only for that lol.

    Anyways, many more features are coming in the alpha version.

    No crashes for me?

    Well its more of neutral opinion, vini. People dont find any big deal in calling a computer from a computer LOL. Actually behind the scenes, yahoo has fixed many bugs that usually go unnoticed .
