We’ve spent the last few months creating the most personalized Yahoo yet — and we know that millions of you want to customize your experience even more. That’s why today we’re introducing an updated My Yahoo with a new modern design, available on your desktop or on-the-go with a tablet or smartphone. It’s now easier to organize and discover your favorite parts of the Web, all in one beautiful place.
The refreshed design gives you a sleek, tailor-made starting page to access your email accounts, calendars, stock portfolio, sports scoreboard, weather, Flickr, and of course your favorite content — from Yahoo and around the Web. You can also choose from a range of cool new themes from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Rachel Zoe and Jenni Kayne; artists Chihuly, Polly Apfelbaum and Alec Monopoly; and even bands like Empire of the Sun, Twenty One Pilots, and FUN. On My Yahoo anyone can create their very own place that reflects a sense of style and personality.
Let serendipity guide you, My Yahoo makes it simple to uncover new content and explore interesting topics and sources that you might not know about. Whether you’re a foodie, news junkie, fashionista, or a stock trader, you can customize a page that’s completely you. Maybe that includes the latest street styles from The Sartorialist, delicious recipes from Epicurious, the latest political headlines from Politico, or clever ways to modify Ikea furniture from Ikea Hackers.
This new experience is just another way we aim to inspire, entertain, and give you a reason to come back every day to Yahoo. And if you’re looking for a new home, My Yahoo has made it easy to import your settings.
We are thrilled to share the new My Yahoo with you and, as always, we welcome your feedback!
