Yahoo will discontinue several product features like its Messenger public chat rooms, Pingbox, voice phone service, and will no longer support Messenger's interoperability with Microsoft Windows Live

MUMBAI, INDIA: In a major change, the global Internet company Yahoo has decided to discontinue various product features and services from December 14.

''Here at Yahoo!, we aspire to make the world's daily habits inspiring and entertaining. More than ever, we're focused on building products that are beautiful and meaningful for our users. Sometimes, this means we have to make tough decisions - like closing down features that we feel aren't adding enough value for you,'' Yahoo said in a web post.

''With this in mind, we have decided to discontinue several Yahoo! product features. This will enable us to refocus our efforts on modernizing our core Yahoo! products experiences and of course, create new ones,'' the company said.

According to Yahoo, it will stop some of the most popular products features and services that include Yahoo! Messenger public chat rooms and messenger Pingbox. As per the new changes, Pingbox will no longer be available on Yahoo Messenger and the company will assist users to uninstall Pingbox from blogs or social networks.

Besides, Yahoo Messenger will no longer be interoperable with Microsoft Windows Live messenger from December 14. Though the interoperability will not exist, Microsoft buddies will still appear on Yahoo messenger contact list, but they will be greyed out and instant messages will not be delivered to them, the Sunnyvale, California based company said in the web post.

Moreover, Yahoo will stop providing Voice phone in and phone out features to users from January 30, 2013. Presently, the Mountain View based VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) company Jajah is offering landline and mobile phones to Yahoo users as co-branded services. But Yahoo said it has already discontinued the recharging of user accounts and in case of user request, Jajah will offer refunds. However, free messenger-to-messenger calls will be available to users through Yahoo Messenger. Do you agree with Yahoo on this move? Do let us know.

Why am I not surprised?? Yahoo is always doing something to make a somewhat good thing worse. First, the end of User Rooms, now the end of regular chat rooms, and the stupid idea to connect messenger ims to ones email so that when you're in a convo in an im box, it disappears when you go to open your mail...duh!!
