Before Whatsapp and Facebook messenger, the very popular messaging app is Yahoo, that almost every individual of 20s and early 30s used. And, still, people love to use it.

Yahoo Messenger is shutting down on July 17th.
Squirrel, the new messaging app by Oath is redirecting users and it is still in private beta, and it’s unclear if the service will open up to the people before July 17th. If you're excited about trying it out you can request access to its beta.

As the communications landscape continues to change over, we’re focusing on building and introducing new, exciting communications tools that better fit consumer needs.
Yahoo Messenger has several hundreds of millions of people from last 20 years and now after that long duration of happiness and feeling it is shutting down.
