No, Kate Middleton didn’t commit a fashion violation (is it just me or is her post wedding style flawless?). The newest version of Yahoo! Mail is out of beta and ready for you!
We’ve got over 50 million users actively using the newest version of Yahoo! Mail and we want you to join them in this faster, safer, easier experience. In the coming months you’ll be asked to upgrade to the latest version of Yahoo! Mail, but you don’t have to wait.
Simply go to http://overview.mail.yahoo.com to upgrade now and reap the benefits:
Faster: This version of Yahoo! Mail is 2x faster than our previous versions of Yahoo! Mail, even for those of you who have slower internet connections.
Safer: Yahoo! Mail blocks over 550 billion spam messages a month and our advanced SpamGuard technology and anti-phishing platform have helped us reduce spam reports by 60 percent. Here’s to a clean inbox!
Easier: Getting things done in Yahoo! Mail is even easier with features like rich photo slideshows, inline video viewing, chatting with Facebook friends, instantly responding to messages with the reply bar and tracking online purchases through the All My Purchases app.
We listened to your feedback over the last 7 months, fixing things and releasing new functionality every few months. And, we verified that 89% of users were able to complete key tasks before we removed the Beta label as well as links to the previous versions of Mail. We also put together these tips to help you during the migration process.
Finally, even though we’ve taken the Beta label off, we will continue to improve Yahoo! Mail. There is a long list of features and functionality we’re tackling in the coming months. We’ll continue to update you here on the blog, so please stay tuned. In fact, it’s an awesome feeling to read your feedback, build something our users want, post about it on the blog and read that you guys love the improvements. It motivates our team here even more, so thank you for that!
