Yahoo has rolled out a new Yahoo Mail app called “Photos,” which lets users easily find all their photos within Yahoo Mail, email or upload them to Flickr, locate emails photos were originally sent with, and sort/filter photos by sender/date/size/file type.
"With Yahoo! Mail receiving and sending on average up to 500 million photos a day, this new tool makes it easier to manage photos coming to (and from) your inbox," a Yahoo representative tells WebProNews.
The video below shows the features:
Yahoo Mail Director of Product Management, Miriam Geller, writes on the Yahoo Mail blog, "f you’re like me, you send and receive a LOT of photos in Yahoo! Mail. From baby pictures, to soccer photos, to what-happens-in-Vegas-stays-in-Vegas shenanigans, my Yahoo! Mail contains a treasure trove of memories. The problem is, those memories are buried deep within my mailbox. Ask me to retrieve those great photos Grandma sent when the twins were 3 (or was that 4?) and I’m likely to throw my hands up in dismay."
"No longer," she adds. "Now, Yahoo! Mail makes it super simple to find and share those treasures with our new Photos app. The Photos app aggregates all of the photos in your inbox that you’ve ever sent or received during the entire life of your email account. You can see thumbnails of all the photos and filter by date, sender, folder and size."
Yahoo Mail users can find the Photos app on the lower-left side of Yahoo Mail in the Applications area.
This week Yahoo also announced a new look and some new features for image search and video search.
