HAIFA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BreezoMeter – the leading provider of real-time environmental intelligence – announced a partnership with Verizon Media – a leader in innovation, commerce and content led by its ecosystem of premium brands like Yahoo, TechCrunch and RYOT – to deliver Yahoo Weather app users access to hourly, location-based air quality data. This important tool empowers users to make informed decisions to limit their exposure to harmful air and better protect their health.
The COVID-19 pandemic and recent record-breaking wildfires have brought personal health and air pollution exposure into the spotlight. People are more aware than ever before of the harmful pollutants in the air they breathe, and they want solutions to help them manage their exposure. BreezoMeter and Verizon Media answered this call.
