Oath, the Verizon-owned company that now runs Yahoo Messenger, hasn't announced any plans to replace it with something that could become an actual competitor to the likes of WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

In place, the company is encouraging users to sign up for Squirrel, which the company has been quietly beta-testing since May.

'Yahoo Messenger will no longer be supported after July 17, 2018. You'll still be able to download your chat history for the next six months, however, by visiting the downloader request site.
