Yahoo Launches ‘oneConnect’ For Mobile
The communications service is scheduled to be rolled out as part of Yahoo Go 3.0 and Yahoo’s new mobile home page in the second quarter of this year.
Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) on Tuesday introduced a new service called oneConnect, which will combine e-mail, instant messaging, text messaging, and social networking in one mobile platform.
The company plans to roll out oneConnect as part of Yahoo Go 3.0 — an all-in-one mobile offering — and Yahoo’s new mobile home page in the second quarter of this year. In the meantime, Yahoo is showcasing oneConnect at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona this week.
One of the more impressive features of oneConnect is a socially-connected address book, which will allow users to transfer activities from social networks, professional networks, and communities to their address book. For example, users will be able to stay on top of when a contact updates their status or uploads a photo to their profile.
