Yahoo late on Messenger for Vista

No ETA yet on Yahoo Messenger for Vista public beta, which is three months late.

Windows users await Yahoo Messenger for Vista. Yahoo

A CNET News.com reader served as my personal tickler file this week, asking me if I knew when Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista will be released.

In January, Yahoo previewed a version of Messenger optimized for Vista and said it would be released in public beta during the second quarter, which ended June 30. So, they are about three months behind schedule.

I asked Yahoo about it and here is the company's reply: "We continue to actively work on Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista and look forward to sharing updates and information including the beta launch of the new service. We will keep you up to date on launch timing but in the meantime, information is available on the Yahoo Messenger blog and the Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista product page."

Curious about a delay with a product? Got some other tip you want us to follow up on? Send them our way.
