When ‘Yo’ Is Not Enough: Yo Status Lets Everyone Know How You’re Feeling with an Emoji

In June 2014, the media and the public at large went nuts for a simple app called Yo, which did just one thing: Send a short audio clip of a person saying “Yo” to whoever you wanted from your phone.

Ridiculous? Perhaps. But it became insanely popular, attracting more than three million users at its height.

Now the Yo creators are hoping lightning will strike twice, with a new app called Yo Status. The app goes live today (February 15) for Android and iOS.

Like its predecessor, Yo Status allows you to do just one thing. But this time, instead of sending a two-character greeting, you can post your current status as a single emoji. Feeling good? ]]>????
