Yahoo Messenger (YM) is one of the most popular instant messenger service. Most of people have YM for their business purpose or personal use only. You can have unlimited conversation with your family or friends, make a video call, send files or pictures, or get their updates from some popular social networking services. All those can be done if you already connected with them and they are in online mode. But sometimes if some of your contacts who appear offline, may not be actually offline They may in the ‘Invisible’ mode. Here are some ways to find out which of your contacts that use the Invisible Mode :
- Open yahoo messenger and double click on the name of the person whom you want to check. The chat window will open. Click IMVironment button, select ‘See all IMVironments’, select ‘Yahoo! Tools or Interactive Fun’, and click on Doodle. After loading the Doodle imvironment there can be two possibilities:
- Double click a person you want to check to open the chat window. Invite the person for a voice conference. This is done by clicking on the “conference’ button on the top of the chat window. If the talk button appears and turns green then that person is online. But if you receive the message ‘Voice chat could not be started’ then the person is offline.
Alternate method is to use free services that available :

There are many reasons why they use Invisible Mode. They might be busy or they avoid to have a conversation with you. Despite whatever the reason are, we should respect that. If you found out that they actually are in Invisible Mode and you still try to send them a message, chances are they would block you which mean you could no longer chat with that person at all.
