Yahoo unveiled a new version of its Mail app with a more organized feature giving users control of their inboxes.
Yahoo Mail introduces an innovative experience that groups people’s messages into “Views” such as Travel and Attachments, and controls email overload by introducing an easy, one-tap unsubscribe tool. Users can log in with other email accounts like Gmail and Outlook and still take advantage of the app’s features, making Yahoo Mail a multi-purpose inbox, designed to help organize people’s lives in the way they need.
“Fundamental to our humanity is how we connect and communicate,” said Guru Gowrappan, CEO, Verizon Media. “Today, much of that communication happens on mobile. People rely on email to manage and organize their lives from navigating multiple accounts, business documents, travel itineraries, and shopping. It’s more important than ever to do this efficiently and stress-free. We’re really proud of the new Yahoo Mail and how it helps people take better control.”
The app will start rolling out progressively on Android and iOS with new features, a modern interface, and navigation that allows for one-hand usage with even the biggest mobile screens. A few notable features and Views include:
- Design refresh and deeper customization: A revamped interface that is built with today’s taller mobile screens in mind allows for intuitive one-hand usage with the new navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. The layout is cleaner, colorful, easier to use, and customizable. Users can also personalize their push notifications to highlight which type of mail they wish to be alerted to (personal vs promotional) and tailor their inbox with custom color themes and sounds. There is also a drag and drop interface with fun animations.
- Photos and files in one place: Now there’s one View that allows easy access and navigation of all mail attachments, including important files, travel documents, event tickets, and photos. The information users need is always at hand.
- Industry-leading management of email subscriptions: With a View for subscriptions, users can browse the emails they’re subscribed to and unsubscribe from any newsletter with a single tap without leaving the app.
