Yahoo! Messenger 11
Keep in touch with your friends and family using Yahoo! Messenger Beta

Instant messaging is a great way to keep in touch with your friends and family as it make it possible to hold voice, text and video calls completely free of charge. Yahoo! Messenger Beta can be used to chat with your contacts all over the world, making free PC-to-PC calls and cheap PC-to-phone calls.

The new version of the IM client can also be used to conduct chats with your Facebook friends - your existing Facebook conversation will be synchronised across to the client as well. You can also update your Facebook status and post comments on other people's accounts.

As well as all of the features you would expect from an instant messaging application, Yahoo! Messenger Beta also allows for social gaming. Facebook users will be familiar with the likes of Mafia Wars and Fish Ville, and now you have the opportunity to challenge you friends to a game from within your IM client.

Full screen video is available and the built-in media player can be used to watch online videos that may be shared in chats. A range of avatars, skins and audible (sound schemes) are available to enable you to completely customise the program to your liking.

This is the final release version of Yahoo Messenger 11 after many months of beta testing.

Verdict:

Yahoo Messenger was already an impressive IM client, and the new social features are a boon.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
