Yahoo is releasing tomorrow a new Livetext service. This allows users to text chat with others with video. There is no sound associated with this new service.
A free Yahoo Livetext application will be available for download from App Store and Google Play Store. You can use your existing Yahoo ID with this service. First time you sign into Livetext you will be asked to associate this application with your phone number and choose a nickname.
Your Livetext nickname is unique to this application. You can share live video and text messages with other people. People can contact you if they have your phone number in their mobile phone contact list.
Also, your nickname is searchable to others. You can upload a profile photo for Livetext. Whenever you receive a message, you have an option to add or delete that person as a friend request.
You can remove friends once they are added to your friends list. This service works on both Android and Apple iOS. This Yahoo live video text service has no limits on amounts of text messages you can send.
Also, none of your messages are archived. If you’re in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Hong Kong, and Taiwan you can start using this service.
