If you prefer video chat over text messaging, you might want to check out the newly launched Yahoo Livetext app. The multinational technology company quietly released the new app, which is available for download in the Honk Kong version of the iTunes App Store.

The revamped Yahoo messenger is putting a new spin on video texting, which combines text messaging with video, but does not include any audio. This is certainly a different offering than other similar messaging features, which tend to focus on short looped videos with audio, sometimes with text overlay. Yahoo Livetext is also ideal for when you can't talk out loud or make noise, but also want to send or receive more visual reactions.

Yahoo has been working on a new messaging app for some time.
