Yahoo set to permanently axe public-chat rooms feature
London: Embattled Internet firm Yahoo has said that it has planned to permanently axe the public chat rooms feature of its messaging tool.

It said in a blog post it would replace the tool, along with other services being removed, with new features.

The chat-rooms tool came under fire in 2005, with advertisers pulling ads after reports of illegal under-age sex-themed rooms, the BBC reports.

The firm said the feature was closing because it was not "adding enough value" for users.

Along with public chat rooms, Pingbox and Windows Live Messenger interoperability are all scheduled to be removed on 14 December, and some other features will disappear at the end of January, the report said.

According to the report, the firm said it would now focus on modernising its "core Yahoo products experiences".
