The New Yahoo Mail App

Last month was Yahoo Mail’s 18th anniversary and the company has decided to celebrate the occasion by introducing a new Yahoo Mail app that is fast, intuitive and smoothly designed. Available on iOS and Android, the new app comes with a number of features, including smarter search, contacts management and enhanced compose option.

To make life easier for people who have more than 1 service providers email account (which of course many of us have), Yahoo Mail users can connect and manage their email accounts from, Hotmail and AOL Mail, right from Yahoo Mail on mobile and desktop. Once connected, users can access Yahoo Mail’s features across all their mailboxes. Now it may not be that useful for users in India as many of us only use Yahoo mail or Gmail and very few of us use AOL or Hotmail in India, but it is clearly going to be good USP for Yahoo Mail app in Europe and USA. The desktop experience is currently available for U.S. English users, and will be coming soon to users outside of the U.S.

In addition to speed, smarts and support for multiple mailboxes, the new app marks the introduction of Yahoo Account Key – a more secure and simple future alternative to the old password. This new feature simplifies the sign-in process with a secure and easy-to-use interface to access a Yahoo account with the tap of a button.

“Passwords are difficult to remember and secondary sign-in verification is inconvenient and confusing,” said Dylan Casey, vice president of product management at Yahoo. “Earlier this year we launched on-demand passwords using an SMS code. We’re now taking a major leap towards a password-free future with the launch of Yahoo Account Key, which uses push notifications to give users simple and secure access using their mobile device.”

Availability of updated App :

The ability to manage multiple mailboxes has been rolled out globally in the Yahoo Mail app. The desktop experience is available for U.S. English users today and will be coming soon to users outside of the U.S. 

The new Yahoo Mail app is available in the Apple App Store and to Android users in Google Play
