Yahoo Mail For Android adds new ability to create, edit and delete filters.

Sometime filters in Mail clients are immensely useful, allowing users to direct (junk) mail from particular senders to the appropriate location (the trash) or apply the correct label. Gmail has had the ability to create and manage filters for years, but its app hasn’t. In fact, it still lacks this functionality. Yahoo, on the other hand, has rolled the feature into the latest release of its Android app, version 2.6. Now users can create, update, and erase filters without having to fire up a web browser.


The new Yahoo Mail app can name a filter, target senders or recipients, and delegate messages that “contains,” “does not contain,” “begins with,” or “ends with” certain words. The menu pops up right at the bottom of the app’s sidebar. In the mean time we hope Gmail app to get updated with these new features. The change log of the new Yahoo app are mentioned below.

  • Enhanced links: Links are enhanced to be nice cards when you share a link while composing an email
  • Updated settings: We’ve simplified settings to make it easier to customize your mailbox
  • Filters: Create, update and delete email filters to help organize you’re mailbox
  • Certified Yahoo badge: Email from Yahoo get a special icon so you know it’s from us

Android users can head over to this link to download the new app.
