Yahoo Messenger Will Soon Have Video Calling

Who wants mobile video chatting/calling/stripping on their Android phone from one of the big dogs in the IM world?  Brace yourself as Yahoo Messenger’s video feature was semi-announced and should be headed to both the good guys and the i*hone, allowing video calls to anything capable of running the IM service.

The free app, will be available for both iPhone and Android phones and will allow smartphone users to not only conduct video calls with each other, but with anyone that currently uses Yahoo Messenger for video calls on their PCs, Katz said (Messenger has 81 million users worldwide, according to Yahoo).

And unlike FaceTime, Yahoo’s mobile Messenger video calling app will work not only over a WiFi connection, but over a carrier’s standard wireless network.

These are the announcements we really enjoy hearing.  While we are lacking many devices with cameras that can take advantage of a service like this, you have to assume that they are coming.

Anyone else excited?
