Yahoo mail, after its procurement by Verizon, has received an entire visual overhaul as the email client has now been upgraded with an easy-to-use and cleaner design. Besides adding new color themes, Yahoo has also modified the outline within the mail client to offer access to documents and photos in a simple way. Moreover, the Ad-free mail service of the company will be replaced with a new service referred as “Yahoo Mail Pro.” It will provide priority customer support and ad-free service similar to its predecessor.
Let’s start with the aesthetics, Yahoo mail is now offering more colors options and layout preferences to its users so as to offer more personalization options. Further, the users can also set light or dark mode to the interface after selecting the color theme of their choice. More spacing is provided between the mail items in order to reduce the muddle and aid in the easy lookout for data.
Documents and photos that are ever received or sent by the users as attachment can be easily seen now within the client. The side-by-side preview can also be used by users for certain emails that enable the viewing of email and attachments together. Apart from this, the search functionality is also enhanced by Yahoo Mail within the app. The users can now see the search result page in the similar way as specified in their “viewing email” settings. For instance, if the user is using conversation mode, the search results page will now display them conversation mode rather than the flat message list.
The users can now dangle over the image icon, with the assistance of Rich View feature, to see the documents and photos that are attached in a mail. Yahoo Mail Pro, the new ad-free service, will be accessible to users at a yearly cost of $34.99. Users also opt for the monthly service at a cost of $3.49. The product’s mobile-only version for iOS or Android can be subscribed for $9.99 per year or $0.99 per month.
Besides all this, with the newest update, even the accessibility has been enhanced within the app. If the user does not want the new layout of the app, he/she can always opt to switch to Yahoo Mail app’s previous classic view by selecting the option “switch to classic mail” within the app.
Thus, with the addition of a bundle of features, hopefully, Yahoo Mail can draw in customers to use their email client.
