Yahoo is trying to make it easier to find news on its web site and mobile apps with a revamp of its interface. It’s also rolling out updates to allow for quicker creation and browsing of comments from Yahoo’s online community.
With this update, we’ve made it possible to sift through more content in less time. You no longer need to open individual articles in multiple browser tabs; instead, you can simply scroll through related stories inline. Up top, our editors pick some of the most important stories you need to know, alongside content most relevant to you. For a more in-depth understanding of a story, see related stories by clicking the “heart” icon, or clicking through to find additional related stories below each article. Over time, as you click on more content, the Yahoo stream becomes more tailored to your interests. The more you use the app and homepage, the better your experience will be.
Yahoo will also provide instant notifications when a major breaking news story is updated. It’s also making changes for its comments interface:
We’ve made it easier for you to share your thoughts, engage and converse with each other about a particular topic or story. This new update surfaces comments directly in-line, making it easy to share and hear reactions from our community, in one place.
The new update should be available for the Android version of Yahoo soon from the Google Play Store.
