A couple of weeks back when we launched the new Yahoo Mail for iPhone, our goal was to put all the information you care about right at your fingertips. In addition to checking email more frequently, we’re seeing that iPhone users are spending more time in the app - browsing news, sports, videos and much more.
Beginning today, we’re bringing that new experience - with the same one-tap access to personalized, real-time news and information - to Android. Go ahead and check email, read the news, search, look up the forecast, catch up on sports, watch videos and browse Flickr, all in the same place, without the hassle of switching between apps.
The new Yahoo Mail comes with a couple of features that are unique to Android. Simply swipe left or right or tap the relevant icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen to quickly and seamlessly move between your inbox, news stream, and Today.
And the Today icon displays the local weather, sports scores, news headlines, popular videos and stunning photographs, thanks to a new Flickr integration.
The new Yahoo Mail for Android is available in Google Play today, and the News and Yahoo Today experience will be rolling out to all supported devices over the next few days. We hope you enjoy it!
The app is now available in select international markets as of August 6., 2014.
