Mail app

Yahoo Mail app updated to v4.8.2 with package tracking updates, theft notifications, and more.

Using a Yahoo email address isn’t exactly “cool” anymore, but millions of people do. The Yahoo Mail app for Android is getting an update today, so maybe it’s time to go back and relaunch that old Yahoo account. You’ll find that the Yahoo Mail app wants to be more than just an inbox.

Here is the changelog for the new version.

  • Get real-time updates for package shipments from Amazon, eBay, Nordstrom and more.

  • Personalize and read your daily horoscope.

  • Edit your favorite sports teams so you never miss a game.

  • Flight notifications now support Orbitz and CheapTickets.

  • Personalize Yahoo Today with new editing options.

  • We’ve also added bug fixes and performance improvements to make your Yahoo Mail experience smoother than ever.

So it’s clear that these are not the kind of functions you expect from an email client. Yahoo is working to make its Mail app a hub for many of its other services. It displays weather, news and some other data. With the new update, it has a little Google Now flavor with package tracking and flight data.

Oh, and you can read your horoscope in Yahoo Mail now, which… okay, I guess that’s good if you like that kind of stuff. Here’s your 100% true, AP-approved horoscope—today you will face great challenges but your mood will improve when you read android police and download new app.
