Yahoo Games, Yahoo LiveText, regional media properties will be shut down as the company tries to streamline its business.

Yahoo’s LiveText app, is among the products that are getting shut down.

Yahoo has announced that it will be shutting down products like Yahoo Games, Yahoo LiveText, its regional media properties, and more as it tries to streamline business.

The Internet giant, which has been struggling for sometime now, announced in a Tumblr post that it will focus on seven core consumer products: Mail, Search, Tumblr, News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle.

Yahoo Games site and publishing channel will be discontinued from Friday, May 13, 2016. For those who have made in-game purchases via the channel, they will now have to reach out to the game publisher to see what options they have for transferring the same. Yahoo says it has reached out to game publishers, and asked them to develop a transition plan for players in the coming days.

Yahoo Livetext, which was launched last year, is a real-time video texting app. Yahoo LiveText would let users send videos without sound and the company claimed that it was a faster form of video communication that relied on body language, rather than sound.

Now Yahoo is shutting it down, adding that it will incorporate the learnings and features into Yahoo products including Yahoo Messenger, which will become their core messaging platform.

Yahoo is also shutting down its regional, genre-specific media properties to streamline editorial offering and will now focus four core content areas: News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle.
Yahoo Astrology will also close in UK, France, Germany, Spain and India. In addition to this, Yahoo Maktoob (Arabic and English) genre-specific media sites, including News, Celebrity, Movies, Style, Helwa, Sports and Weather, will close and the pages will redirect to the Yahoo Maktoob homepages in Arabic and English.
