This is a professional email organizer that is renowned for featuring a user-friendly interface that makes it super simple for all users, even those who are not tech-savvy, to organize their emails and get rid of spam. The reason why Yahoo Mail is making headlines on our website today is because the developers have decided to introduce a new feature to help users get faster access to important news.

Yahoo Mail 6.5.1 Update

As previously noted, Yahoo Mail fans should be pleased to know that a brand-new update is coming their way. The update is changing the email organizer’s version number to 6.5.1 and it is available to download via OTA (over the air) channels. This means that the only thing that Yahoo Mail fans are required to do in order to access the update is to keep their smartphones connected to the internet.

News Feature

“The coronavirus has become a pandemic, and Yahoo is working to ensure you have the latest information available at your fingertips,” said the developers of the email organizer in the patch notes. The update introduces a new health icon that is located at the right of the “Compose” button and if users tap on it, they will receive instant access to all the latest news about the Coronavirus. In addition, the update also makes it possible for users to opt-in for notifications on the latest developments and stories.
