Big Updates for Yahoo Mail Apps

By Josh Jacobson, Director, Product Management

We know how important it is for you to be able to navigate your contacts effectively and share compelling emails with your friends, family and coworkers. So we’re bringing fresh new features to Yahoo Mail for iOS and Android.

What’s new? On iOS, find a new look for blue links, easier sharing and artist-made stationery, courtesy of Paperless Post. On Android, we’re introducing a complete directory of all of the people you interact with, bringing back contact syncing with your device and launching an Open Beta!

New for iOS: Sharing is Caring

You’ve shared that the below are some of your favorite features on desktop, so we’re bringing them to mobile!

Link Preview

The next time you want to send an article or webpage, we’ll convert that blue link into a visual, informative card that gives recipients a snapshot of what you’re sending right in their email. You can even choose whether you send the enhanced preview card in the middle of your email or below, at the bottom of your note. Plus, if you receive the enhanced link, you can easily share it on Facebook, Twitter and more.

Stationery

We know how much you love sending stationery, courtesy of Paperless Post, in web mail on desktop, so we’re making stationery themes available in the Mail app. To personalize your emails, simply tap on the compose assist button (+), select the stationery icon and choose from dozens of stationery designs including Floral, Thank You, Happy Birthday themes and more!

Share Button

Now you can share content directly via Yahoo Mail. Just click the share button and choose the Yahoo Mail app icon. Whether you want to send pictures and videos from the Photos app, a link from a web browser or text from your notes, you’ll have an email started with whatever you’re sharing included.

The new features, as well as the ability to rename accounts and mailboxes, are available today in the Yahoo Mail app for iOS (4.4) around the world.

Android Updates: It’s All About People

A Complete Directory

Starting today, we’re bringing you one place to find all of the people you interact with. Just go to the “People” Smart View (in the sidebar) and click “see all contacts”. This will take you to a list of all of the people you’ve communicated with, which you can browse and edit. And of course, you can still also find someone you’ve emailed through search and view their details by tapping their picture (or initials) in your inbox.

Contact Sync

As many of you have requested, we’ll now sync your Yahoo Address Book contacts and your Android device’s contacts . This will be off by default, but you can turn it on in your Android device’s sync settings.

Open Beta

That’s right, we’re starting an open beta! If you want to try out new and experimental features before other Yahoo Mail users, opt in here. Your participation and feedback will help us make Yahoo Mail better, faster and more stable.

There’s More

You may notice some other small changes in this update, including new animations (try deleting or starring a message!) and a congratulatory message when you hit inbox zero. These features are rolling out to you today, just be sure to update your Yahoo Mail app on Android to the latest version (5.5).

As always, don’t forget to share your feedback – just go to Settings and tap “Send Feedback.”

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
