Yahoo! Next was a showcase of some of Yahoo!'s newest and upcoming projects. It is essentially an incubation ground for future Yahoo! technologies in their beta testing phase, and a chance for the Yahoo! community to interact and have a say on how upcoming products are designed and fine tuned. Each prototype can be discussed in its own individual Yahoo! Next forum.
The Yahoo! Next website has been "offline for redevelopment" since 2007. As of February 28, 2012, the Next service is no longer listed on the list of Yahoo! services, redirecting to Yahoo's Developer Network.
