Yahoo reveals new email serviceDecember 12 - 8am 14
Yahoo revealed a new version of their email service this morning, becoming the first major overhaul since CEO Marissa Mayer took the reigns five months ago.
The company says Yahoo Mail, the no.3 email product worldwide, will adopt a renewed focus on smartphones and tablets, including improvements for PC users.
“You’ve told us loud and clear that you want fewer distractions when it comes to email,” Mayer said.
“You want to quickly login, communicate, and get on with your day. And we’ve listened.
“Starting today, the new Yahoo! Mail is fast, easy and available anywhere you go.
“These improvements will be available on all major platforms: Web, Windows 8, iPhone/iPod touch and Android.”
Branding email to be the ultimate daily habit, Mayer reiterated her stance of keeping communication simple, saying:
“We’ve redesigned the new version of Yahoo! Mail with speed in mind — getting through your emails is faster than ever before,” she said.
“We’ve also made your inbox more intuitive and easier to navigate, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your messages.
“And, because mobile is everything these days, Yahoo! Mail now has a consistent look and feel across devices.
“Over the next few days, most mail users will begin to experience the new web version of Yahoo! Mail.
“We encourage you to download the mobile apps, check out the web experience, and give us feedback so we can continue to improve.
“We’re committed to making Yahoo! Mail everything you want and more, and this is just the beginning.”
