In a statement issue by Yahoo they said “This complete revamp brings users an incredibly fast, beautiful and smart way to send – and unsend – messages, photos, and animated GIFs in 1:1 and group conversations. While today we provide basic interoperation between the legacy product and the new Messenger, we encourage all of our users to complete their transition to the new Yahoo Messenger as we will no longer support the legacy platform as of August 5, 2016. We intend to continue our focused efforts on the new Messenger, with a goal of delivering the best experience to our users,”
