I have been using Yahoo Messenger 7 Beta Indian version for last 3-4 days, its pretty cool…specially Hindi Audibles…..and I also liked their new feature “Drag-and-drop file transfer “, which makes sending file much more easier…

Following is the list of features…

  • Drag-and-drop file transfer
  • Audibles that talk your language
  • Interesting avatars
  • Contact cards for one-click communication and access to Address Book
  • Easier access to Yahoo! Search
  • Indicators for new Yahoo! Mail
  • Coming soon new tabs for Cricket, Indian stocks and more

The known issues include

  • On Windows ME, there are intermittent crashes when you sign out and sign back in. To avoid crashes, completely exit Yahoo! Messenger and sign back in.
  • File transfer between the Yahoo! Messenger Beta and earlier versions of Yahoo! Messenger are not supported.

and it crashes on my XP too 🙁 but worth giving it a shot…

You can download it from here

UPDATE: If you are not able to see Hindi Audibles even after installing Indian version, then check your yahoo profile and make sure that Location is set to India, if not then change it to India, save it and relogin to messenger… It should show the Hindi Audibles now 🙂
