Yahoo Revamps Email

  • Marissa Mayer unveiled the first major change she has initiated in Yahoo since she took over as CEO - Yahoo Mail launched a swanky new version for the web users and for iPhone, Android, and Windows 8 users. On the Yahoo Official Blog, Mayer wrote, “We’ve redesigned the new version of Yahoo! Mail with speed in mind — getting through your e-mails is faster than ever before. 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”. This defines the focus of the product revamp. Yahoo has focused on speed and performance and cut out any subsidiary functions in order to achieve this objective. Yahoo's primacy as the world's favorite email was taken over by Gmail (Google Inc). Yahoo is currently at No 3 in the world after Gmail and Microsoft Corp's Hotmail. In the US, however, Yahoo Mail still remains the favorite email.
