On Tuesday, Yahoo launched Caller ID and Photo Upload features for its Yahoo Mail app – allowing users to identify a caller from their email contact list and also access their phone camera roll on a desktop. The new features are now available and users can update Yahoo Mail app in the App Store (iOS v4.13) and Google Play (Android v5.13).
Yahoo pointed out that the new Caller ID feature will show users who is calling even if the number is not saved in the smartphone. It uses contact information from emails. As soon as someone contacts the user, the name of the person will surface with the call and Yahoo Mail will update names in the user’s call history when he or she dials. To enable this feature, users will simply need to go to Settings > Phone > Call blocking and Identification, and toggle the switch for Yahoo Mail.
As for the Photo Upload feature, when it is enabled, all the recent camera roll photos will be instantly available when accessing the Yahoo Mail account on desktop. To enable this feature, users need to open the Yahoo Mail app on iOS or Android, go to Settings > Photo Upload and tap the Upload Photos toggle.
