Yahoo Mail adds text messaging support

Chris Ziegler

Among a host of other improvements getting rolled out to Yahoo Mail this week comes this little gem: integrated support for SMS. Already having supported email and chat directly from the Mail client itself, text messaging seems like a logical jump, offering users the capability to fire up a text conversation with little more than a phone number and a few lines of text (remember, keep it brief!). Initially available to folks in the US, Canada, India, and the Philippines, the service should do a fine job of burning through hundreds of your closest friends' text messaging plans -- a solid reason to start upgrading to those unlimited packages that carriers are starting to push, we reckon.
