NEW DELHI: Yahoo has announced two unique 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. With this users, according to Yahoo, will never have to guess who’s calling or email themselves a photo again.
Yahoo’s new Caller ID feature will show the user who’s calling, even if the number isn’t saved in the phone. Yahoo Mail uses contact information from the user’s emails.
With the new photo upload feature, Yahoo says it has bridged the gap between the user’s phone and desktop to make photo sharing seamless. Once the feature is enabled, recent camera roll photos will be instantly available when accessing Yahoo Mail account on desktop. One would be able to search 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 recent trips.
The new features are now available so be sure to update on Yahoo Mail app in the App Store (iOS 4.13) and Google Play (Android 5.13).
