Yahoo Messenger is officially closed today and forever. Here's how to download your history and conversations before it's too late
When an application or service is used daily by millions of people, you can not imagine a day that will become obsolete and will have to announce its closure.This is what happened to Yahoo Messenger, and today July 17, 2018 closes its doors forever. The company announced a month ago that it would stop its support, and it seems to have kept its promise."Yahoo! Messenger will stop receiving support as of July 17, 2018. Until then, you can continue to use the service in the usual way," the company warned in a statement.The problem is that Yahoo has made it clear that "after July 17, you will not be able to access your conversations and the service will stop working." In fact, now that we have entered the Yahoo Messenger site, a message will appear at the top informing us of this important change and taking us to the support page announcing the removal of this platform. If you are a Yahoo Messenger user and do not want to lose all your conversations, the company gives you six months (as of today) to save them on your computer. And to do so, You should go to this web page, sign in using the name of the user you used in Yahoo Messenger, and set the verification method and then receive the record via e-mail.It is not known whether Yahoo will re-launch the messaging application in the future, but on the support page, it already announces that it is experimenting with new services and applications.
