Yahoo spokesmen says that ” we are experimenting with new product experiences that delight our users. We have nothing further to share at this time”.

Yahoo claims Livetext is not an alternative to a smartphone’s built-in mobile apps rather it is an entirely new way to stay in touch. The application also seeks to solve the problem of how to improve the demonstration our selves by not dependent on typing alone.

As per Yahoo, “The advent of the smartphones led a shift towards convenience and speed. we have gone with communicating primarily with our voices to using the fingers to text on the glass”.
