Yahoo has launched an updated version of Yahoo Messenger which brings support for video chat to the iPad 2. Yahoo Messenger 2.1 is also the first version of the app optimized for the iPad display. Users can make calls to anyone using the Yahoo Messenger app for iOS, Android, PC, or Mac.

The app is also available as a free download for the iPhone and iPod touch and includes better spam management and several bug fixes.

This makes Yahoo Messenger one of the first apps optimized for the iPad 2 to offer video chat, and puts the app in direct competition with apple’s FaceTime video calling service.
