How can view Yahoo Messenger Conversation History?

Have you upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Messenger? You must be enjoying the new features added but what is this? You can’t see your old conversations. You haven’t expected this. Don’t panic! Here is a tool offered by Yahoo! that allows you to view conversation history easily.

The tool is named conversation archive tool (https://messenger.yahoo.com/archive/). It will display the most recent conversation at first. Useful filters are also provided to see conference messages, instant messages, SMS messages, all conversations, video calls, audio calls, phone calls and all calls. You can choose them according to your requirement.

Apart from this, you can also use search box to directly find any conversation. All you need is to remember the email id, name or topic of conversation to type in the search box. If you want to see older conversations, click on ‘Load more contacts.’

These steps can be followed while accessing Yahoo Messenger via web browser. If you are using Yahoo messenger on your iPhone, move to the next part.
