Yahoo’s New Messaging App, Livetext, Features Live Video To Your Texts

Posted by at 10:01 am on July 29, 2015

Yahoo! today launched Livetext, its new messaging app to compete with services like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Snapchat.

The app lets you have a text conversation with one other person at a time, accompanied by a silent, 2-way live video stream. The app is designed for situations where audio might be inappropriate for one or both parties, but you want to share what you’re seeing and/or facial reactions.

It does not support group messaging. The app first appeared quietly in the Hong Kong iOS App Store, but today is being launched in the U.S.

It will be available tomorrow for both Android and iOS.
