12/03, 7:10pm

Chat rooms, Pingbox, MS Messenger all get the axe

Yahoo announced last week that it would be shuttering a number of features in Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Voice that the company feels "aren't adding enough value" for users. Chief among these will be the closing of the public chat rooms on Yahoo Messenger. Yahoo will also be shutting down Pingbox for Yahoo Messenger, ending Messenger's interoperability with Microsoft Windows Live Messenger, and closing Yahoo Voice's Phone In and Phone Out feature.
