Yahoo has updated its Messenger app to include voice and video calling for iPad 2 users as well as an interface optimized for the iPad. Video and voice calling first debuted in Yahoo! Messenger in October for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. This latest update hit the App Store last night and brings the app to version 2.1.
The full list of what’s new in version 2.1 is as follows:
- iPad-optimized layout
- Voice & video calling for iPad 2
- Improved spam management: block one or all add requests from a single view
- Fixed multiple bugs including the unexpected sign-out issue
One important note in the app’s description states that this update requires iOS 4.0 or higher. Video calling requires an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 4th-generation iPod touch or an iPad 2.
Yahoo offers low-cost international calling through its Phone Out program which is accessible through the Yahoo! Messenger app. More information and rates can be found here.
