After releasing similar features for its iOS app, Yahoo today updated its Yahoo Mail for Android app with number of its other services like news and weather integrated into the experience. That includes new one tap access to news, weather, sports, stocks and the ability to search the web and Flickr directly from within the Yahoo Mail app.

Rather than the new tab UI it introduced on iOS, Android users will be able to swipe between the various new features:

The new Yahoo Mail comes with a couple of features that are unique to Android. Simply swipe left or right or tap the relevant icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen to quickly and seamlessly move between your inbox, news stream, and Today… And the Today icon displays the local weather, sports scores, news headlines, popular videos and stunning photographs, thanks to a new Flickr integration.

The updated Yahoo Mail app is available on Google Play now and the News and Today features are rolling out in the coming days.
