Yahoo announced on Wednesday that it is rolling out a new mobile web interface across many of its properties, including Mail, Finance, Homepage, Search, Messenger and News. Here’s a look:
“We’re focused on building products for where our users are, and that includes mobile apps of course, but it also means providing an awesome mobile web experience, regardless of the device you use,” says Juliana Santarelli, Yahoo Senior Product Manager of Mobile & Emerging Products. “Today many of our global users are accessing their web experiences on feature phones.”
“We wanted to be sure all our users get the best possible experience,” she adds. “So today, you’ll find a refreshed, modernized mobile web experience that’s more consistent with our mobile apps regardless of the level of device you’re using, from smartphones to the most basic feature phone. Our focus is to ensure our sites maximize the available space on your phone’s screen, improve page performance and are available to our users regardless of what device you’re using.”
This all follows Tuesday’s news that Yahoo is also rolling out redesigns to a bunch of its sites, like Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Movies, Yahoo Music, Yahoo TV, Yahoo omg!, Yahoo Games and Yahoo Weather.
