After a rather negative trajectory in Windows App Store, Yahoo! Mail App has been officially shut down. Although, when you look in the Microsoft Store, the app is still there with an actionable button to get the app. Misleading though, as when we click on the link the download is not available.

Going forward, we advise you not wasting any time and access your account on the web browser. You can also sync your account with a mail client for Windows 10, 8.1 and we strongly recommend using MailBird or eM client.

Yahoo! Mail Windows 8 app users should download and install the latest update that has just appeared in the Windows Store

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users have to agree with me that Yahoo! Mail looks simply gorgeous on a Windows 8 or Windows RT tablet, as the app has been seriously revamped for Windows 8.1. Along with the 3D Mark update, I’ve also spotted what seems to be a minor performance improvement for Yahoo! Mail on Windows 8.1, but one that you definitely should download.

The official release notes refer to bug fixes, without providing additional details. But I’ve been browsing through some Yahoo! forums and I’ve seen that certain Yahoo! Mail users have reported issues especially with Windows 8.1, despite the fact that the app has been synchronized to avoid these windows 8.1 yahoo! mailsituation. So, if you’re one of the unlucky ones, then you probably should get the latest update.

As always, the app remains completely free and featuring no ads at all (at least, I don’t see them). Let us know with your comment if this update has solved bugs and crashes that you might have had with Yahoo! Mail in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
