Yahoo has announced that it will pull the plug on the 20-year old Yahoo Messenger service on July 17, as they will aim to develop newer messaging tools “that better fit consumer needs,” Fortune reports.

Currently, Yahoo has no replacement for Messenger, but it is testing new chat apps like Yahoo Squirrel, which is not widely available yet.

Yahoo Messenger users who want an archive of their texts can visit a special website where they can download a messaging history, but the option will only be available for six more months.

Yahoo Messenger debuted in 1998 and was widely popular for a number of years. Recently, however, apps like Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp have taken over.
