Yahoo! Messenger adds iPad 2 video chat

Yahoo! has just brought another video chat option to the iPad 2 with the latest update to it’s Yahoo! Messenger app. Version 2.1 of the app finally brings tablet support, and adds in the ability to video chat from your iPad 2 to your Yahoo! Messenger friends.

With Yahoo! Messenger 2.1 you can use your iPad 2 to video chat with anyone else on iOS, Mac, or PC. So, if you don’t want to use FaceTime, or your friend only has a PC, you have another option for video chat.

Of course, the app has a bit more than just video chat. There’s also better spam management, so you can block multiple friends requests from one screen. No longer will you have to block each individual request, which can get tiresome. The update also solvs an issue where users would be randomly signed out of their accounts. So, the update is pretty much to add tablet support and fix some nagging issues and bugs. Not bad at all.
