Yahoo Messenger to shut down on July 17

Yahoo owner, Oath has announced that the iconic Yahoo Messenger will be shutting down after 20 years of existence. Although no reason was given for the move, it is, however, obvious to pinpoint the dominance and huge popularity of Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, WeChat,  WhatsApp and a number of other IM apps as a deciding factor.

Even though Yahoo Messenger has lost its relevance in the past few years, there is no denying the fact that it was one of the first instant messaging apps many of us interacted with.
