Yahoo has been one of the revolutionaries in technological advancement, especially in the internet field. Whether for emails, chats, or anything else, Yahoo has managed to impress us all with the things they provided us.

One of the most popular products from Yahoo was the chat rooms and they were instantly a hit. but, later, they were not able to revive the product and there was an issue with it. it came under fire in 2005 when advertisers threatened to pull ads out of it. There was a big scandal of illegal underage sex-themed rooms.

Since there was no administration over the chat rooms, people were doing some shitty things on the platform. So, they had to make some tough decisions to revive the chat rooms.

Yahoo Chat Room is Shut Down

Since that debacle, this product never became what it set out to become. The users kept leaving the platform and it was impossible for them to keep it afloat. And after some deliberation, they decided to shut down the service once and for all.

Since the closure of their services, there are many other similar platforms sprung up. So, if you want to use such platforms, you are free to check them out. But there is no news of Yahoo chat rooms opening again anytime soon.

However, after the end of the chat rooms, Yahoo messenger was still one of the prevalent mediums of communication. After the closure of chat rooms, they released a new version of Yahoo messenger, hoping to lure the audience back again. But there were better options available on the platform which could be used to chat and do more stuff on mobile devices.
