“Yahoo!’s vision for online communications brings together all the tools that people use to connect  email, chat, SMS, and social updates  and makes it easier for them to share content and engage in conversations with the people that matter most to them. We are delivering on this strategy with the latest version of Yahoo Mail, providing our hundreds of millions of users worldwide with a fun, engaging and  constantly connected experience across desktop, mobile and tablet devices that keeps the conversation going anytime, anywhere,” Blake Irving, chief product officer, Yahoo has said.

Yahoo is counting on the changes to help attract
and retain email users at a time when more people are flocking to the rival
Gmail service run by Internet search leader Google. Although Yahoo’s service
remains larger than Gmail, it has been losing ground in the past year. Through
April, Yahoo boasted 277 million email users worldwide, a drop of about 3
million, or 1 per cent, from the same time last year. Meanwhile, Gmail had
grown to 220 million wordwide users, up 43 million, or 24 percent during the
past year.
