Online giant Yahoo has announced a new feature for sharing videos on its messaging app – Yahoo Messenger. The feature makes it easier to show when users want to share experiences with the people they care about.
Whether it’s sharing videos of a toddler with friends and folks or an incredible scenery while on a vacation, the newest update to the messenger includes all. Available globally on both iOS and Android, users can now send videos in one-on-one and group conversations as well.
Similar to sending photos, while composing a message, a user needs to tap on the gallery picker to choose a video from a device’s gallery. However, in a move more or less similar to Facebook’s Whatsapp, the user would be required to trim videos to a minute or less in order to send them through the app.
Earlier this month, Yahoo announced the availability of Yahoo Tiles, a new mobile ad format to reach users through engaging, interactive content in India. It enables brands to tell visually compelling and immersive stories across Android and iOS devices.
“When consumers click on a mobile ad, they are taken to a custom mobile landing page that can feature 360-degree video and images as well as dynamic and interactive features such as video, swipeable images and social feeds,” said the company in a statement.
“With its lightweight design, Yahoo Tiles delivers a more engaging and seamless consumer experience for mobile native, video and display ads,” the statement added. The format also helps advertisers reach diverse audiences, including more than 600 million mobile users on Yahoo and across other extended network.
