Yahoo has released its revamped Yahoo Mail app on Wednesday for Android and iOS platforms. While the updated Yahoo Mail app for Android is already available in the play store, the iOS app update is still in the process and expected to be rolled out soon.

The Yahoo Mail app for iOS and Android now updated with the panel which includes the options for Mail, News, Search and more. The new Mail panel will now shows the regular Yahoo Mail inbox while the News panel includes the new personalised news stream. The new Today panel in the update is inspired by the Google now, news digest, showing weather, stock quotes and sports updates are amongst others.


The new Yahoo Mail update for the Android and iOS enables the users to swipe left or right to quickly navigate between the News, Inbox and Today rather than tapping on the relevant icon. Smart search feature is also included in the update which was partially rolled out with earlier update. For example, if you start typing a name, Yahoo Mail app offers the smart search suggestions, including both the people and messages.

Smart suggestion features helps you to narrow the search results. This app filters your search results by files or photos, messages and you can scroll through them to find out what exactly you are looking for.

Yahoo Claims that during the testing of the app, users spent 50 percent more time inside the app, when compared to the previous versions, thanks largely to the new engagement driven features like Today and News.

As mentioned earlier Yahoo Mail app updated version can be download from Play Store and for iOS it is yet to be released.
