All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Watch now.

Earlier this month, Yahoo debuted its new messaging app called Livetext focused on the silent video. It was available to those in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and France. However, it’s time to ramp things up: Now everyone in the world will be able to test out this new app as it rolls out globally.

Yahoo says that it will support most of the major languages in this release; while Arabic and Japanese are not included, they hopefully will be added in the future.

So now, people can send messages from anywhere to their friends, not just within the original five launch countries.

For more information about Livetext, be sure to check out VentureBeat’s hands-on review of the app.

You can download Livetext in the App Store and Google Play Store.
