Yahoo mail for Android gets an overhaul

Well, that didn’t take long. Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, formerly an executive with Google, took to the blogs yesterday to announce that they’ve completely revamped Yahoo! Mail after only five months at the helm of Yahoo!. In the blog, she mentions, they “told us loud and clear”  that customers wanted “fewer distractions when it comes to email.” Well, ask and you shall receive. The updated version is  faster, cleaner, and more consistent across all devices. Along with the mail application running more efficiently, you can specifically expect the following:

  •  Rebranding: The application can now be found as ‘Y! Mail’ on your device.
  •  Better battery performance
  •  Increased stability
  •  More secure with SSL turned on by default
  •  More reliable push notifications
  •  NewUI

What are your thoughts? Do you currently use Yahoo! Mail and look forward to the revamped performance and looks? Let us know.
