Voice chat missing in Yahoo messenger India

Today when I tried using my yahoo messenger India to voice chart with a friend I found a surprising fact. The yahoo messenger India does not support voice chat, despite its good glossy look the Indian version of the messenger is missing a vital feature like voice chat which people are very used to ,but the international versions do support the good old voice chart.

Well the solution for this is to get a yahoo messenger US. But before installing it be sure to remove the old messenger using Add and Remove programs from Control Panel and reboot your system.

Curious to know the reason for the absence.

  1. Well.....I had personally put a mail to yahoo customer care.....The answer i got is it is not supported in Indian version, that's it!

    Well, if yahoo messenger US can have the voice chat options, why not the Indian version?

    May be yahoo believes in providing inferior products to India.....Anyways, we got no options but to go for messenger US....But the catch is you will miss out local chat rooms such as bangalore, Chandigarh...cochin etc....

    So Die hard chatters got no option...they have to choose one among the two- either chat rooms or voice chat :P
