Yahoo May Add Music and Other Features to Messenger

SMS Text

Yahoo is measuring the demand for new Yahoo Messenger features that would let people listen to music while chatting, or manage a single address book from IM.

In the past week, Yahoo started issuing surveys to select visitors of its Web network, questioning them on their preferences for potential features on Yahoo Messenger, the company’s popular instant chat application.

Fresh features could include games, friend icons, avatars or stealth-mode capabilities within Yahoo Messenger, according to sources.

Another enhancement includes letting IM users listen to music from the application (by Internet radio or perhaps a Yahoo Juke Box partnered with Launch).
