Yahoo Mail mobile apps get extra sharing and sync features

Written by Jaymin Shah

Yahoo continues to improve its Mail app for mobile devices. After adding support for Google Drive files and GIFs last month, the company is bringing more sharing and sync features to iOS and Android users. If you’re on Apple’s platform, Yahoo Mail now lets you show links in emails as previews, with a quick snapshot of information from any site. Additionally, you can start sharing pictures directly to Yahoo Mail, thanks to a new iOS share button for the app.

Android owners are getting a couple things to help them keep better track of contacts. The People Smart View tab, for example, allows you to see a list of folks you’ve been in touch with recently through Yahoo Mail. With this update, the Android apps also syncs your Yahoo and Android contacts, something that probably should’ve been there from the beginning.

And for those of you interested in testing features like these before the public, Yahoo Mail has opened up a beta program for Android — opt-in for that starts today.
