The second big new feature is part of yet another company-wide move. Yahoo has been working on integrating more social features into its products as well as integrating Facebook and Twitter. With Yahoo Messenger 10, users were already able to keep up with their friends on a number of sites and social networks via the Yahoo Updates service.
 

Yahoo Messenger 11 takes it one step further with the ability to share a status message with your Messenger friends, everyone else via Yahoo Updates and also on Facebook or Twitter, all at the same time.

Chat with Facebook friends

What's more, Yahoo Messenger 11 also enables you to chat with your friends on Facebook Chat via the dedicated instant messaging client. This feature should come in handy for those wanting to connect to friends on both networks. Facebook, of course, does not have an official desktop client for Chat.

Yahoo Messenger for Android with voice chat and photo sharing

Finally, the third big theme for Yahoo Messenger 11 is universal availability. The idea is to make it possible to continue a conversation regardless on what device you're on at the moment, your laptop, your tablet or your smartphone.

For this, Yahoo has finally introduced an official Messenger client for Android phones. The Android app is feature packed and you can make video calls (on supported devices, MyTouch 4G and EVO for now) as well as share photos and videos.

Stay signed in on multiple PCs

With Yahoo Messenger 11 an age-old rule has been broken, you can now stay signed into multiple devices at the same time. Any message you receive will be forwarded to any of your desktops or laptops at the same time so you won't miss it regardless of where you are at any time.

Conversation history available from any PC

In order to make this even more seamless, any stored conversations will be available on any device at any time. Until now, only conversations saved with the web client at webmessenger.yahoo.com were available on any device across different sessions.

Now, this has been extended and you have access to recent conversations on any PC where you use Yahoo Messenger 11. This means that the conversations are saved in the cloud, convenient but maybe a bit creepy for the privacy conscious.

Still no support for Windows Aero

On the downside, Yahoo Messenger 11 Beta comes with the same non-native, colorful themes that have been the norm for a few versions now. If you're looking for something that will integrate well with your Windows 7 install, this isn't it, Yahoo Messenger still stands out like loud, purple unicorn at a funeral.

Features like tabbed conversation windows and others that power-users have been wanting for years are still nowhere to be seen. If Facebook integration and mobile use are important to you, Yahoo Messenger 11 is going to be great, if not and you wanted something more, well, at least, you're used to not getting it by now.

You can start testing the Yahoo Messenger 11 Beta by grabbing it from the link below. While this is labeled as a beta and some bugs should be expected, it should be stable enough for regular use based on previous beta releases of Yahoo Messenger.
