Yahoo has introduced the ability to connect Gmail and Google Apps account to Yahoo Mail. Yahoo introduced multiple mailbox management for Outlook.com, Hotmail and AOL Mail which helps sync all actions across all mailboxes, like moving emails between folders, deleting emails, marking them as read, etc. When the user composes an email, one can send it from any account they is connected to which can either be personal, school, work, etc even though one is using Yahoo Mail.
Multiple mailbox support for Gmail within Yahoo Mail is available globally in the Yahoo Mail app and on the desktop browser. To connect to the Gmail account, users need to go into their Account Settings in the Yahoo Mail mobile app or on the desktop respectively. Yahoo has also announced new features for the Yahoo Mail iOS and Android apps.
Some of the Yahoo Mail features that users can now use across Gmail emails include the ability to sign in, password free. Account Key makes signing in to the Yahoo account quite easy. One can now easily add photos and videos using the Yahoo Mail app. Users need to click on the ‘+’ sign when composing a new message.
In addition, with the new search option, one can view not only display relevant messages but also files and photos from all connected mailboxes. The contacts manager, powered by Xobni technology, makes suggestions for who you should email based on your habits. Yahoo Mail also displays contact cards that include information you may need about someone which could be email addresses, phone numbers, social media info, email history and so on.
“All the features you need and love in Yahoo Mail – powerful search, smart contacts, rich compose features and Yahoo Account Key for password-free sign-in – are now available with Gmail. Here’s your path to a more convenient, powerful and personal email experience. You can now search across your entire history of emails, from day one, for all connected mailboxes! (Not just your most recent emails, which is how it’s done in many apps today),” said Shiv Shankar, Senior Product Manager at Yahoo.
