A mobile app for Mozilla Thunderbird is on the way

Ryan Lee Sipes, product manager for Mozilla Thunderbird, announced the news on his Twitter account. However, he says releasing a mobile app is a number two priority. Fixing Thunderbird’s UI/UX is the top priority. In terms of design, Mozilla Thunderbird is not as fancy as its rivals, but it still offers a steady and enjoyable experience. Of course, the Thunderbird product manager emphasizes that being the second priority does not mean that fewer resources and attention are devoted to the mobile app.

A mobile version for Mozilla Thunderbird is in the works, according to the product manager. According to Android Police, the business is working on it. With the growth of Gmail, Outlook, and other email services, just a few individuals use email programmes these days. Mozilla Thunderbird was one of those popular 2003 clients that couldn’t keep up with the competition. The product manager has now stated that they are working on a dedicated Thunderbird mobile app.

Moreover, Mozilla also has two ways ahead for releasing the Thunderbird mobile app. First, they can release it via Google Play. Second, make it free and open-source to distribute through the F-Droid app store. The Mozilla Thunderbird market share is now only 0.08%. The company needs to prioritize some fundamental corrections to prevent service extinction. The company has not yet announced an exact or estimated time for releasing the Thunderbird mobile app. However, it’s unlikely that the app will come in the short term as the development team has prioritized fixing UI/UX. A dedicated mobile app for one of the oldest email clients ever could be good news for those looking for a reliable FOSS email client.

Mozilla’s main focus is on developing its browser and turning it into a tough rival to Google Chrome. The company has recently released Firefox 100 with a bunch of new features, including picture-in-picture with support for captions and subtitles.
