Yahoo today announced the availability of the Yahoo Mail app for Windows 10. It’s available now in the Windows Store.

“The app brings you brand-new ways to effortlessly access mail and get notified of new messages,” Yahoo director of product management Josh Jacobson wrote today. “In addition, the wide breadth of features already available on the web are all available in a familiar interface.”

The app shows how many unread emails you have on the lock screen. The latest emails show up in a Live Tile in the Start menu. Desktop notifications appear when you’re logged in and receive new emails. And you can personalize the app with themes courtesy of Flickr.

It’s just the latest native app to arrive on Windows 10. Other apps updated for Windows 10 include Duolingo and Fitbit.

But developers have only been able to submit Windows 10 apps to the Windows Store since July 29, so plenty more should be on the way.

Yahoo Mail had 225 million monthly active users as of May.
