Yahoo New Zealand today (Friday) launches Yahoo Livetext, a new one-to-one live video texting app for iPhone and Android. Yahoo Livetext blends the convenience and ease of texting, with the immediacy and vividness of live video.

“Yahoo Livetext is a new way to stay in touch – it’s non-intrusive, quick and real-time, just like real-life conversations,” says Yahoo7 director of product & audience Caroline Casey

“Interactions, from a goofy smile to an eye roll and a sigh, mean a ‘Lol’ isn’t needed to ensure the meaning of a text message – real-time reactions are placed at the centre of the conversation. Yahoo Livetext removes audio so you can share moments and memories anywhere, anytime – without disrupting others.

“Globally, the Yahoo technology teams are dedicated to creating new products that make our audience’s daily habits inspiring and entertaining,” Casey says.

“We’re really excited to introduce Livetext to New Zealand smartphone users. Yahoo Livetext puts your words and your friend’s real-time reactions at the centre of your conversation, combining the emotion and immediacy of live video with the simplicity of text messaging.”

Yahoo Livetext is available in New Zealand from today at both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
