Yahoo Upgrades Android App -- Adds News and Photos

Published on:

Yahoo has released an updated Android app for its Yahoo Mail service that as with a previous iPhone update expands the range of Yahoo services available to the users.

The new app is moving closer to being less an email dedicated service and more of an overall platform for all Yahoo services.

As such it now includes tabs at the top of the screen with links to the emails, but also now Yahoo's own news content serices, and options for the user to create a personalised news feed.

Another tab includes the staples of content services, such as weather and sports.

They are also including links to the photo sharing service Flickr, which Yahoo owns.

Yahoo says that it also deployed the usual slew of performance improvements and bug fixes.
