Yahoo today has announced a feature-rich update to the Yahoo Mail app for iOS. The company says that the update dramatically improves the ability to share content like links in emails thanks to the addition of share sheet support while there are also new personalization options.

First, Yahoo Mail on iOS now supports link previews. This means that whenever you paste a link to an article or webpage into an email, the app will convert the link into a preview of the website. Additionally, you have the option to have the link preview card appear in the middle of the email or at the bottom.

Today’s Yahoo Mail update also adds support for stationery courtesy of Paperless Post. You can now give your emails a little more personalization by inserting stationary themes directly from within the Yahoo Mail app. A variety of themes are available, including Floral, Thank You, and Happy Birthday.

Finally, you can now share content from other parts of iOS directly to Yahoo Mail thanks to a share sheet icon. As with all share sheet functionality, simply tap the share button and choose the Yahoo Mail icon from the choices.

Yahoo Mail is available on the App Store for free and the full change log for the update can be seen below:

New for iOS: Sharing is Caring

You’ve shared that the below are some of your favorite features on desktop, so we’re bringing them to mobile!

Link Preview

The next time you want to send an article or webpage, we’ll convert that blue link into a visual, informative card that gives recipients a snapshot of what you’re sending right in their email. You can even choose whether you send the enhanced preview card in the middle of your email or below, at the bottom of your note. Plus, if you receive the enhanced link, you can easily share it on Facebook, Twitter and more.


We know how much you love sending stationery, courtesy of Paperless Post, in web mail on desktop, so we’re making stationery themes available in the Mail app. To personalize your emails, simply tap on the compose assist button (+), select the stationery icon and choose from dozens of stationery designs including Floral, Thank You, Happy Birthday themes and more!

Share Button

Now you can share content directly via Yahoo Mail. Just click the share button and choose the Yahoo Mail app icon. Whether you want to send pictures and videos from the Photos app, a link from a web browser or text from your notes, you’ll have an email started with whatever you’re sharing included.
