The most popular IM tool just got a lot better. The all-new Yahoo Messenger 10 Beta (v10.0.0.525-US) is here with a lot of interesting updates and refinements in both the User Interface and feature support. Let us take a brief look at what’s new in Yahoo Messenger 10.
Now you can do more than just IM with the your yahoo messenger. Apart from connecting with your friend(s) over IM, you can invite a friend from other services to come chat with you, send text messages, watch web videos or view photos with friends using its in-built media player.
Yahoo has improved its video calling experience by redesigning the webcam feature to making high quality video calls right from the IM window. To begin, just click the “video call” button in the IM window and get started.
The video windows can be swapped, positioned side by side, hide your own video space and can even render a full screen video call mode. While using a video call, you can use other features of Yahoo messenger like File Transfer, Photo Sharing or games as well.

Note that the friend you video call has to also be on Yahoo! Messenger 10. And these video enhancements are just for 1:1 video calls; broadcasting your webcam to multiple viewers (with no audio) has not changed.
