Yahoo has today introduced the ability to connect and manage your existing Gmail and Google Apps accounts right from your Yahoo Mail account. All the features of Yahoo Mail, including Yahoo power search, smart contacts, rich compose features and Yahoo Account Key for password-free sign-in, are now available with Gmail. Users can now also search across their entire history of emails for all connected mailboxes.
Multiple mailbox support for Gmail within Yahoo Mail is rolling out globally today in the Yahoo Mail app and on the desktop browser. To connect your Gmail account, go into your Account Settings in the Yahoo Mail mobile app or on the desktop.
Below are some of the Yahoo Mail features that you can now use across your Gmail emails:
- Sign in, Password Free: With Yahoo Account Key on mobile, you no longer have to memorize complicated passwords. Account Key makes signing in to your Yahoo account as easy as tapping a button.
- Compose Engaging Emails: Easily add photos and videos with the new Yahoo Mail app. Or, try the new compose feature on desktop to find and add not only photos and videos, but also GIFs, files and links too. Just click on the “+” sign when composing a new message.
- Search Smarter: Find what you need quickly with our search results pages that not only display relevant messages but also files and photos from all your connected mailboxes.
- Access Contacts Across Your Mailboxes: Our intelligent 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 (i.e. email addresses, phone numbers, social media info, email history and more).
