It’s that time of year again and hopefully you’ll be spending time with your friends and family in person. But in case you can’t make it to the festivities, we’ve loaded up Yahoo! Messenger with a few items to help you spread holiday cheer to all your friends.
With the “Holiday” category of audibles you can send funny greetings from the gingerbread man, mushy mistletoe and even a rapidly disappearing snowflake. The “12 Days of Christmas” audibles put a humorous twist on the popular English Christmas song.
Audibles are available in Yahoo! Messenger 8.1 or 9.0 Beta (for Windows). When you’re in an IM conversation, click the Audibles icon ( ) to access the menu. Then click the “More Audibles” button and look for “Holiday” or “12 Days” under the Winter Holidays category.
And don’t forget the ever-popular Snowflakes IMV! When you have the IMV running, hit the Buzz button to send your friend a snowy greeting. To load the Snowflakes IMV, click the IMVironment button during your conversation (it’s under “Animals and Nature”), or click here to try it now (you must be running Yahoo! Messenger 8.1 or 9.0).
P.S. – If someone ever sends you an audible you want to check out yourself, just click on it in the message and select “Find Similar Audibles”. This will bring up the menu for that audible category.
