Yahoo Messenger with Video Chat Comes to iPhone - Yahoo! News

Remember that iPhone Messenger app with video calls that Yahoo">promised us late last week? Well, it's now live in Apple's App Store.

The new version of Yahoo Messenger enables users to make video calls and stream live video one-to-one over 3G or Wi-Fi. What makes the app really interesting is the ability to establish a video call between an iPhone and an Android device (provided it has a front-facing camera) or between an iPhone and a PC.

You can also make free voice calls to your Yahoo Messenger friends, as well as low-cost international calls with your Yahoo Voice Phone Out account. Unfortunately, this last bit is available only to users in the U.S., France, Germany, Spain and Singapore.

Finally, the new version now supports multitasking, meaning you can work on other tasks on your iPhone while the app happily runs in the background.

The app is available for free in the" target="_blank">iTunes store.

Finally! I am able to use the iPhone4 to video chat with others on PC or MAC. I have actually tried it and the quality is pretty decent. Obviously nothing beats the quality of the FaceTime video chat but I am surprised how long it took to enable iPhone to PC Video conference to be activated.
