Yahoo! Messenger 10.0.0.542 Beta
- Improvements in the webcam detection logic: If you were able to use your webcam on 9.0 or other IM programs, but not on Yahoo! Messenger 10, this fix should take care of the issue.
- Explanation for grayed-out video call button: If your video call button is grayed-out when youâ€™re IMâ€™ing with a friend, itâ€™s because theyâ€™re on an older version of Yahoo! Messenger. In order to receive your video call, they also need to upgrade to Yahoo! Messenger 10 Beta. To help reduce confusion about this, we added an inline message explaining this.
- Smoother handling of unanswered calls: When you make a call to a friend but they donâ€™t answer within 20 seconds, the call is automatically terminated. Previously there was no messaging about this, so we added one to let you know that your friend did not answer your call.
- Better explanation for downgraded video calls: In the event your internet connection can no longer support the full video call (e.g. video + voice), the conversation gets downgraded to a voice-only call. When this happens, the video picture disappears. This is the correct behavior, but we added some inline messaging so youâ€™ll know when and why itâ€™s happening.
