Yahoo! India introduces Yahoo! Mail in Hindi

In a bid to further strengthen its presence in the vernacular space, Yahoo! India has launched its mail service in Hindi. Yahoo! Mail offers a complete Hindi interface, wherein users can send and receive emails in Hindi. Yahoo! Mail in Hindi includes all information similar to the one in English, except that it offers a distinct local flavour.

John Kremer, Vice-President, Yahoo! Mail, said that the product and engineering teams in India had played a crucial role in this localisation. Yahoo! India has also announced a Web-based version of its instant messaging service, Yahoo! Messenger, named ‘Yahoo! Messenger for the Web’.

Yahoo! Messenger for the Web does not require any downloads and gives people the freedom to instant message from anywhere from an Internet-enabled computer. A big attraction is that it allows users to chat in up to nine Indian languages, including Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Punjabi, Bengali, Marathi, and Gujarati. Users can also switch between languages seamlessly.

Globally, Yahoo! is launching a new version of Yahoo! Messenger – Yahoo! Messenger 9.0. The new version has a redesigned interface with new ‘skin’ background designs, and new emoticons for expressions like ‘thumbs up’, ‘thumbs down’, and ‘rock on’.

Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 has more apparent communication features. With this version, users can forward offline IMs to mobile devices as also forward incoming phone calls to phone numbers. Videos can be sent from YouTube, Yahoo! Video, etc, and contacts can watch synchronised video through a sharing window. Similarly for photographs from Flickr or users’ desktops.
