Today Yahoo! announced that Yahoo! Mail will move out of beta and become generally available for millions of users in the coming weeks. With this latest version of Yahoo! Mail (available in multiple markets and multiple languages), Yahoo! offers a faster, safer, easier and constantly connected experience across all devices that keep the conversations going — anytime, anywhere.
- Faster : Yahoo! put an emphasis on improving performance and delivered an experience that is at least 2x faster than previous versions. Whether you are on DSL, cable or dial-up, you’ll notice a dramatically faster Yahoo! Mail.
- Safer : Yahoo! upgraded our SpamGuard system and Mail Anti-Phishing Platform (YMAP) to reduce spam and phish-laced emails by an additional 60% -- that’s on top of the billions spam messages Yahoo! block each month.
- Easier : Yahoo! introduced even easier ways to connect and to share, organize and store online conversations and media content. Yahoo! added the ability to quickly reply to your Facebook friends, view inline photos and videos to engage and delight users, deeper integration with Yahoo! Messenger to support multi-mode scenarios, and new Apps like YouSendIt and All My Purchases to extend our eco-system.
- Constantly Connected : And Yahoo! has made sure that these are seamless experiences that travel with you – allowing people to engage with Yahoo! Mail on a PC, iPhone, Android or tablet device.
The end result is a personally relevant communications experience — one that drives deeper engagement with consumers, excites advertising partners, and allows the teams to deliver continued innovation rapidly.
