Yahoo Livetext is a new way to stay in touch – it’s non-intrusive, quick and real-time – yet also fleeting, just like real-life conversations. Interactions, from a goofy smile, to an eye roll and a sigh, mean a ‘Lol’ isn’t needed to ensure the meaning of a text message – as real-time reactions are placed at the centre of the conversation. Yahoo Livetext removes audio – so you can share moments and memories anywhere, anytime – without disrupting others.

Caroline Casey, director of product and audience at Yahoo7 said, “Globally the Yahoo technology teams are dedicated to creating new products that make our audience’s daily habits inspiring and entertaining. We’re really excited to introduce Livetext, the newest Yahoo app to Australian Smartphone users.”

Yahoo Livetext puts your words and your friend’s real-time reactions at the centre of your conversation. Combining the emotion and immediacy of live video with the simplicity of text messaging.

Yahoo Livetext will be available in Australia and New Zealand from both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store from today.
