‘Radio Station’ Tab in Yahoo!® Messenger

How to get the ‘Radio Station’ tab in Yahoo!® Messenger?

Yahoo!® Messenger is an instant messaging service provided by the Yahoo!® group. The application is used to conduct online conversations with people. You can also listen to your favorite songs using Yahoo!® Messenger.

Yahoo!® Messenger is the only major instant messaging service to provide the users with access to pre-programmed or customized radio stations directly on the instant messaging application, through LAUNCHcast Radio, a leading Internet radio music service. The users can listen to customized or pre-programmed radio stations directly on the Yahoo!® Messenger application. In addition, the users can choose to display the current song title playing in the LAUNCHcast Radio station as a status message.
