Few days back Yahoo! mail introduced new features like attractive themes, social network integration and more. Yahoo! also assured that it will come up with new features and thus Yahoo! announced that it will provide third-party authentication with Facebook and Google IDs.
This OpenID login feature will roll out from January 20. The new Facebook and Google login will help user to sign-in or Sign-up to Yahoo! network and comment on news articles, review a movie, access images on Flickr and access all the Yahoo! services through your Facebook and Google ID.
This is good way to attract the Google and Facebook users again and the best part we can skip the registration process while singing up for new account on Yahoo! which waste time. Now all Google and Facebook users (which are in millions) can easily access Yahoo! with a single click.
Yahoo seems to be excited with this new feature, here is what they wrote on their blog:
Yahoo! strives every day to bring you the content, information, tools and meaningful social connections relevant to you from across the Web. It’s our belief that by continuing to open up the Yahoo! network to third-party IDs, we can help more folks join in the fun and create exciting, more personalized and inclusive online experiences.
Check out the video below to know how the new feature will work:
Hope this feature will help Yahoo! to grow its users more who are more declined towards Gmail and other mail services. What you think about this new login feature from Yahoo! ? Do you think its useful for making Yahoo! better?
