We are excited to let you know a new version of Messenger App for Android is now available! In this latest release, you can now let your contacts know where you are by adding your location when you update your status message. If your friends are nearby, they may just meet you there!
The ‘Add Location’ button in the Status Message view lets you add your general location to all status updates. You can also add a specific place, like a restaurant or park. Unable to find a place or local business from our suggested listings? Not to worry, because you will have the ability to manually enter a place or local business, which will be registered as a new location in our directory and can be used by other users on Yahoo! Messenger.
Please note that adding a location to your status message is completely optional and will only be enabled if your Android phone allows us to detect your location via GPS satellites or WiFi and mobile networks. Once you declare your location, all your buddies will see where you are so you never have to miss them again when you are in the same neighborhood. It will be fun, give it a try today!
