Yahoo adds silent video to its texting tool

Back to silent moving pictures!

Bangalore, August 14, 2015: Yahoo  has launched in India, its new  visual  extension to  text messages.    Yahoo Livetext blends the immediacy and simplicity of texting with the expressiveness of video, without the audio and it is now available around the world in every major language.
Livetext puts your words and your friend’s real-time reactions at the center of your conversation. Whether you are cheering at a Cricket match, club-hopping on a Saturday night, or at your local music gig, you can spontaneously connect with friends and family and invite them to experience moments with you. With the video on, you can not only share a text with your friend, but also see their expression real time, and without having to take an audio call. Simple conversations transform into richer experiences and become more authentic and memorable.
Explains  Yahoo: Our solution is to go back to the basics, by putting your words and your friend's real-time reactions at the center of your interaction. We've removed audio from the equation, as it's rarely convenient in today's fast-paced world. Livetext transforms simple conversations into rich,fun, and memorable experiences. It's an entirely new way to stay in touch. For example, livetext your friends no matter where you are—whether you're hanging out with other friends, at a ballgame, in a club, or commuting on a train— and share a goofy face or a glimpse of the world around you.
