After redesigning its Mail service to improve the speed, Yahoo! has now released official Mail app for Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 operating system. Yahoo! Mail users can now install the app by visiting the official Windows 8 Store using the Store app.
Yahoo! Mail app for Windows 8 features an easy-to-use interface and includes all options that you would expect from a decent email app. Using the app, one can send and receive messages, share photos, videos, & documents, search emails, scan messages in your inbox with continues scroll, and more.
The app also comes with live tiles feature. That is, one can view the new message right on the Start screen when there is a new message arrives to the inbox.
The current version lacks multiple account support, options to adjust the font size, and adjust columns. Yahoo! will certainly introduce these missing features and options in the next release.
By default Yahoo! Mail adds “Sent from Yahoo! Mail for Windows 8” text as your mail signature. To change it or turn off signature, after signing-in, move the mouse cursor to the upper or lower right corner of the screen to open Charms bar, click Settings and then click General.
