Yahoo Mail announced new enhanced link previews that a spokesperson for Yahoo says "transform the typical blue link into a visual, informative card that gives email recipients a snapshot of the content right in their email."

"With link previews, you can now play video and audio right in the email, and share the link directly to your social networks," they said. "We’ve also improved the underlying technology to produce a richer preview with price, movie title, article author and more."

With the new previews, you can control the size and location to select where the preview fits best in the email (inline with text or at the bottom).

Any link preview you receive in an email can be shared on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter with the share button at the top of the preview image.

Yahoo talks about the new previews in a blog post here.

Last week, Yahoo announced that people can now sign up for a new Yahoo Mail account using an existing email address and without having to create a new Yahoo address.
