Like with the Facebook messenger, users will be able to send GIF messages too tapping into the extensive base animations on Tumbler. In a feature that could be of use in markets like India, there will be a sync protocol for when the network is not reliable. So photos and messages that are shared when there is no network will sync when the connectivity comes back. Austin Shoemaker of Yahoo said the messenger will be among the fastest as it does not take time to sync messages from the server.

Yahoo will sort contacts based on the most frequently interacted names. However, in response to a question from IndianExpress.com, Shoemaker said the messenger only works with Yahoo accounts and cannot sync third-party messaging platforms like Google Hangouts or Facebook Messenger, which are now more popular. Users will have the ability to sync between multiple Yahoo accounts.

The messenger is very similar is design language to the new Yahoo Mail app and will be available in 44 languages for web users but limited to English on Android and iOS.
