IncrediMail unveils new version of HiYo for Yahoo!

Targets a user base of 600 million instant messengers

By CBR Staff Writer

IncrediMail, an internet company, has released a new version of its instant messaging software HiYo. This new version is claimed to support the Yahoo! Messenger which reportedly boasts over 250 million registered users.

According to IncrediMail, HiYo is offered as a free add-on. It includes emoticons, animations, and sounds, without advertisements. The previous versions of HiYo only supported Microsoft Live Messenger with over 300 million users worldwide.

The company is also planning to round off three IM programmes by adding the AOL Instant Messenger, with over 50 million active users, at a later date.

Ofer Adler, CEO of IncrediMail, said: “Our goal is to make instant messaging more fun and more personal for as many users as possible. Prior to the new version, only users of MSN instant messaging were able to enjoy HiYo. Now Yahoo! Messenger IM’ers have access to the same quality, interesting content which they will not only want to use, but can now also share with friends and family.

“With versions supporting Yahoo! and MSN – the top instant messaging programmes available today – we now have a target base for HiYo of nearly 600 million instant message users worldwide.”

IncrediMail is an internet company that develops downloadable graphic consumer applications, markets and delivers personal desktop software.
