You can now use the Yahoo Messenger app for video chats, thus linking iPhone users with users of the messaging service on the desktop as well as Yahoo Messenger users on other platforms like Android.
With this enhancement, Yahoo has leapfrogged over Apple's FaceTime which only runs on the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod touches.
Yahoo Messenger is supposed to be able to run over 3G as well, though a WiFi connection is recommended.
Early reviews are mixed with some people reporting success in using the video chat and others saying it does not work.
Yahoo Messenger is free. You can download it here.
