Yahoo Messenger Unsend

We’ve all been there. You’ve sent a risky text to someone, maybe to the wrong person. Or even worse, sent a picture to the wrong person… Well now there’s a way to unsend them with Yahoo Messenger!

It’s been a while since we’ve really heard anything from Yahoo, but they’ve just come back swinging with the updating their messaging app, Yahoo Messenger. The messaging app from Yahoo offers similar features to other messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, such as create group chats, name groups and assign an image to the group, send pictures and GIFs.
