    If you can't find it it is because it isn't ready for honeycomb yet. You can side load the APK and install but it will likely force close and or crash the tablet.

    Best start bugging who ever you can get a hold of at yahoo and see if they will give a date or offer you the beta version. I used the help and sent the question in.

    Here's the official word.

    Hello Josh,

    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mobile.

    Before I go into addressing your concern, I'd like to first apologize for the delay in my responding to your inquiry. We are committed to answering your questions as quickly and accurately as possible. However, we are currently receiving unusually high volumes which caused the delayed response.

    I understand you wish to have more information regarding the ability to use Yahoo! Messenger for Android with Android OS 3 Honeycomb.

    Thanks for your suggestion of a new feature for Yahoo! Messenger for Android. The current version of Yahoo! Messenger for Android doesn't have this feature, but we appreciate that you took the time to tell us about what you'd like to see in a future version. I'll pass your suggestion on to the Yahoo! Messenger Product Team, and they will put it under consideration for a future release. Please understand that our development cycles can be quite lengthy, so your suggestion isn't likely to be added right away if the development team does decide to include it.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know as soon as possible.

    Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Messenger.

    Be sure to check the Official Yahoo! Messenger Blog for more information and the latest updates about Yahoo! Messenger!

    I got Yahoo Messenger to work. This may not work for all, but I got it working.

    Link to Yahoo Messenger apps.
    Delete your current app, install both of these.

    1) Side load Yahoo Messenger apk & the Video Update apk.
    2) Install them.
    3) Open Yahoo Messenger(It will tell you to install update, don't)
    4) Hit back button
    5) Hit Home Screen
    6) Open Yahoo Messenger again
    7) Your contacts should load, & you're good to go!

    Threy don't even have a yahoo mail app, so I assume it's going to be some time before there's an official messenger app.

    Thanks. That worked for me as well... the IM portion, anyway. Since I installed both APK files, shouldn't video messaging work as well? I can't even find an option to activate my webcam or start a video chat.

    It works but what a pain to have to go back, home then relaunch everytime. How do I switch camera priority? It defaults to rear cam.
