Among new features for the app, users can now customize swipes, meaning you’ll be able to choose what happens when you swipe across your messages in your inbox. Options for the customizable swipes include star, send to folder, archive, and more.

You’ll find the new customizable swipe options under Settings>Swipe actions.

And also arriving for the app today are new Multi-Select Toolbar options: “Now you can “star” and “mark as spam,” just tap on the “…” in the multi-select menu.”

To round out the update, Android users get the ability to use swipe actions directly from notifications, eating you’ll now be able to archive, mark as spam, star, or whatever you have selected for swipe actions before even opening the email or the Yahoo Mail app.

Even before you open the Yahoo Mail app, you can now take action on incoming emails right in the notification for a faster and more seamless way to manage your emails. The actions available in your notifications are the same ones you’ve selected for swipe actions.

Check out the updated Yahoo app for Android on the App Store.
