Yahoo is planning a mid-week press event to reveal a new messaging app, according to a report from Re/code. The event was originally speculated to be related to a new version of the Tumblr or Flickr apps, but Re/code’s Kara Swisher noted that it will instead be related to a new messaging endeavour.
The idea that Yahoo! is launching a new messaging app is interesting, given that the company debuted its Livetext chat app only a few weeks ago. It’s possible that this event will simply be dedicated to an Android version of that software, or it could point to a revamp of the now-defunct Yahoo! Messenger app.
