You might recall that last December we launched a number of apps in Yahoo! Mail, including one called My Photos from Xoopit. Since that time, My Photos has been by far the most popular app in Yahoo! Mail and we’ve heard from many of you that you don’t know how you lived without it! With that in mind, we recently announced we are acquiring Xoopit, and are excited about integrating Xoopit’s platform technology into Yahoo! Mail for even better photo sharing and photo discovery.
Xoopit will bring to Yahoo! Mail the powerful indexing you need to make sense of the hundreds or thousands of photos contained in your unlimited storage inbox and enhanced photo sharing capabilities to get photos out to your friends, family and contacts.
We’ll provide more info about how photo sharing in Yahoo! Mail will improve in the coming months. In the meantime, if you want to try out Xoopit and the MyPhotos application click here: http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/applications to sign up.
