    Show Yahoo messenger Status as Current playing Song Foxy Tunes

    Few days back I have written a simple trick which you can use to show your Window media player playing song as Google talk status. I always missed such kind of feature in Yahoo messenger, but good news is from now on you need not need to miss Yahoo messenger music status message. Now you can show your current playing music title as yahoo messenger status.

    Yahoo announced the new plugin for yahoo messenger Foxy tunes, which is also a very popular addon for Mozilla Firefox to control your multi media player.

    From Yahoo official blog

    When you select a player, it will launch it on your desktop (if it’s not already open). Then use the controls in the FoxyTunes plug-in to begin playing the song, skip to the next song, pause, adjust volume or move ahead in the song by clicking the progress bar.

    To share what you’re listening to with your Yahoo! Messenger friends, click the Share your music icon (the one with two arrows on it). Be sure the box for Display current song as your status message is checked, and then click your status message menu at the top to select the currently playing song from the list. When the next song comes on, your status will automatically update.

    You can download the Foxy Tunes plugin for yahoo messenger from here. Download the plugin and install it. Once it is installed , you can easily select the player from the list.

    I always missed this feature in Yahoo, earlier we can show current playing music only using Yahoo music , but I wanted to show it from my desktop , and glad yahoo rolled out the plugin for the same.



    Hi Harsh I can able to learn new things about latest information on your blog. Thank you anyway.



    Nice information, I will try this current play songs for yahoo messenger.



    I installed the plugin Harsh, But is shows this error “Oops! We’ve had an error” . How to rectify that.. Can you help me?



    Hey mate, thanks for this.. I hope this works!! lol Ill b back if doesnt . :D :p



    I just came back to say that “Yeah, it totally and completely works” Thanks!!




    I don’t know how old this is, but…the latest version of Yahoo no longer has the “Share your music” Icon. Nor can you set your current song as your status anymore. Which was the entire reason I installed the FoxyTunes plug in at all. So…to the trash it goes.
