Now read attachments and write mail simultaneously on Yahoo Mail..!

Yahoo, in pursuit of beating Gmail in competition has made an amazing update in its mail system. Now a user of Yahoo mail can read attachments and work on mail simultaneously. According to The Next Web, Mayukh Bhaowal, senior product manager, Yahoo Mail, described the whole process in a blog post. He explained that whenever the user selects an attachment, a new preview window will open which will let the users read the attachments on the preview window while enabling him/her to work on mail simultaneously.

As of now, the users have to go back and forth while reading the attachment or while composing a mail. Yahoo saw this as a problem and made this extremely innovative product where users will experience the best of the functionality a email system currently present. Not only this, Yahoo has added a new preview mode for the small screens and a presentation mode for PowerPoint Presentations.

The design is highly responsive, even if the users reduce the size of their operating window, the preview window will change into the expanded preview mode. Not only this, while working in the expandable mode, the user can still toggle between the mail and the attachment by hovering over ‘back to message. Gmail is expected to soon launch such a feature.
