You can now use your Gmail account within Yahoo Mail

After adding support for third-party email clients Hotmail, Outlook and AOL earlier this year, Yahoo has announced that starting today, you will be able to access your Gmail account from within Yahoo Mail. Yahoo mentions that you'll be able to access your entire Gmail archive, with attachments included, and not just the last 200 emails. You can even search through all connected mailboxes from a single location.

Here's what you can do with the latest addition to Yahoo Mail:

  • 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).

The update is now live in the Play Store. If you're interested in taking a look, hit up the badge above to download Yahoo Mail.

  • Yahoo Mail? What is this the 90s? I send all my throwaway spam into that account. Everything for me is all on Gmail.
  • What is this "Yahoo" you speak of? Is it somewhere along the lines of "ask jeves" and "Bing"? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have zero spam with Gmail. Now my yahoo account is Spam Central. Could somebody please explain why this happens? Dam It Feels Good To Be A Google Gangster
  • Odd, I never get get spam. It goes into the spam folder. Try marking as 'spam' things you feel is spam. But I agree Gmail has better spam filters. Posted via Nexus 5
  • That's just wrong on so many levels, I scarcely know where to begin.

  • I'm a rare bread. I actually really dislike Gmail but do have a Gmail account. I'm happy Yahoo finally got this integrated. Posted via the Android Central App
  • @cohoman. I totally agree. So obvious... Posted via Android Central App
  • Yah who? Posted via the Android Central App
  • I use 2 Yahoo mail accounts and 3 Gmail accounts. Each account has a different purpose and I actually prefer to keep them separate, not combined, so this update does not appeal to me. (My dog also has a Yahoo email account.....he needed one to get his Facebook page!)
  • All my spam goes to Gmail and I virtually never look at it. Your dog should paws for thought, he may be barking up the wrong tree. Insert other tails here :

  • Oops pocket posting on the 6p Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yahoo should just give up. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have been stuck with Yahoo for 17 years now as a work contact. A - Do I want to give Yahoo my Google account B - I can't send from my main Yahoo address on the recently revised new app, it's an alias of the original, and the text is unreadable in light grey on white. I hope this update fixes something.
  • Why... Just drop out like Blackberry and IE lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Too much, too little, too late. I'm ready to divorce Yahoo completely, as it has become a magnet for everything spammy. I don't even trust that Yahoo is secure email, so why would I want to filter more secure email from Gmail through one that is less secure?? Basically, my Yahoo email address is for junk mail anyway. Anything or anyone I care about is sent only to my gmail address. So, thanks, Yahoo, but (hell) no thanks! Posted via the Android Central App
  • The update sucks, you can no longer sync contacts with yahoo mail. Posted via the Android Central App
