Are you still using Yahoo Mail? If so, you’re apparently not alone. The free email service, now owned by Verizon, now boasts over 227 million active users worldwide with a whopping 26 billion emails received every day. Today, Yahoo Mail is launching a new version of its mobile website, which offers many of the same features that are available for its mobile app users.

Yahoo says this revamp of the Mail mobile website is to help users all over the world get the best experience on their phones, no matter where they’re located, what hardware specs the device might have, or network speeds.

Some of the features that will be added to the Yahoo Mail mobile site include swiping to either delete emails or marking them as read, along with a sidebar menu with organizational folders, auto-suggest for searching for email addresses, an infinite scrolling inbox, and an easy access toolbar that lets you quickly take actions on emails. The mobile web version also has options to change the color theme to light and dark backgrounds.

Along with the new mobile site, Yahoo Mail is also launching an app specifically for Android Go devices which are entry-level smartphones that run a stripped-down version of Android.

In this case, the Android Go version of Yahoo Mail uses the same architecture as the standard Yahoo Mail Android app, and has most of its major features, while also cutting down the RAM usage below 50MB. You can download Yahoo Mail for Android Go at the link below.
