If Yahoo Mail is your email app of choice on Android, take note: you can now test out upcoming features with the newly launched open beta. Like other Android app betas, all you have to do to participate in the Yahoo Mail beta is opt in on Google Play. From there, you'll be able to download the test version of the app and submit your feedback.

Yahoo launches an open beta program for its Mail app on Android

Aside from the beta launch, Yahoo also announced an update rolling out to the non-beta version of Yahoo Mail. And if you've been hoping for some new ways to interact with and manage your contacts, you're in luck. From Yahoo:

Starting today, we're bringing you one place to find all of the people you interact with. Just go to the "People" Smart View (in the sidebar) and click "see all contacts". This will take you to a list of all of the people you've communicated with, which you can browse and edit. And of course, you can still also find someone you've emailed through search and view their details by tapping their picture (or initials) in your inbox.

Additionally, Yahoo Mail can now sync contacts from its address book with the contacts on your phone. Yahoo notes this is off by default, but you can turn it on in your sync settings.

Interested? If so, you can grab the latest version of Yahoo Mail on Google Play now.
