Yahoo has announced 2 new updates to Yahoo Mail app. The new features help users to identify the caller from their email contact list and also access their phone camera roll on their desktop.
Caller ID Feature
Caller ID feature will show you who’s calling, even if the number isn’t saved in your phone. Yahoo Mail uses contact information from your emails. If you’re like most of our users, you have at least 200 phone numbers sitting in your email. your contact’s name will surface with the call and Yahoo Mail will update names in your call history or when you dial. Mystery solved.
To enable this feature on your phone, go to Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification, toggle the switch for Yahoo Mail.
Access mobile photos on your desktop
Once the feature is enabled, your recent camera roll photos will be instantly available when accessing your Yahoo Mail account on the desktop. You will also be able to search your mobile photos easily in the sidebar thanks to Yahoo’s image recognition technology. For example: searching for “beach”, “ocean”, or “snow” will pull up relevant photos from your recent trips.
To enable this new feature you need to open the Yahoo Mail app on iOS or Android, go to Settings-> Photo upload, and tap the “Upload photos” toggle. These photos are only visible to you and the people you decide to send them to. Additionally, you can remove any photo directly from Yahoo Mail without affecting your camera roll. The new features are now available, update your Yahoo Mail app in the App Store or Google Play to get these features today.
