[video] Yahoo LiveText: Text Messenger with Muted Video Response

Yahoo, the fallen Internet leader, has now come up with its messaging app that aims to bring a breadth of fresh air by letting the user record a muted video message that will be played through the conversation. This might be another frail attempt to overtake WhatsApp but still stands tall with its unique feature of a video response.

Yahoo Livetext puts your words and your friend’s real-time reactions at the center of your conversation. Whether you’re watching Avicii DJ at the Creamfields Festival, at Venice Beach or taking in the view from the Eiffel Tower, you can spontaneously connect with the people you care about and invite them to experience moments with you. Your friend’s goofy look or giant smile, even her eye roll or silent sigh, suddenly become a part of your conversation. Simple conversations are transformed into vivid, authentic and memorable experiences that you can share anytime.


How it works?

Video response will be tuned to the conversation box where messages beautifully hovering it will further enchant the design. What remains to be seen is that if this has the power and the drive to replace the market leader, WhatsApp which was valued at $19 billion when acquired by Facebook. A Video down below will further demonstrate App’s Functionality.

Globally available starting from tomorrow, the app was soft released in just a few countries primarily for testing reasons. What do you think of the app? Let us know in the comment box below.
