Following up with the announcement last week that a new iPhone app from Yahoo was on the way, folks at Boy Genius Report now point out that this application has now been released to the App Store and is already available for purchase. As already noted, this application brings a significant feature addition that lets users video-call their friends and family over both a 3G as well as a Wi-Fi network.
The new Yahoo Messenger app is one of the several third party apps that have gone one step ahead of Apple’s native FaceTime video calling functionality that offers video calling solely via a Wi-Fi network. With 81 million users worldwide, expect a significant rate of adoption of this new app. As announced earlier, Yahoo is also learned to be working on an Android app that is expected to launch shortly with these same features.
