Yahoo revamps its Cricket app to compete with ESPNCricInfo and CricBuzz


We all thought that Yahoo’s mobile apps are done and dusted. However, the company surprised us when it recently launched a completely revamped version of Yahoo Messenger and now, Yahoo Cricket. The new version of the app gets a slick new user interface design and real-time updates. The app is now available for download on iOS and Android devices through App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.

Apart from a new look and feel and fast sources of Cricket-related information such as news, scores and statistics, the Yahoo Cricket app brings new features such as Ball By Ball Commentary, Embedded Tweets, Infographics, and Moments You Missed. The ball-by-ball updates and commentary feature was sorely missed in the app. Moreover, users can also take part in polls and see live photos as well as tweets in the app.

The refreshed Yahoo Cricket app is a step towards enhancing the match experience for millions of cricket fans in India who crave real-time, quality content and superior fan experiences every day.Be it our lightning-fast cricket scores or unique features like ‘Moments You Missed’, the experience that users will get through the Yahoo Cricket app will be unique and engaging,” said Gurmit Singh, Vice President and Managing Director, Yahoo India, in a statement.
