yahoo mail updateIf you have an Android device and you use Gmail, chances are you might have noticed that when you order something online, its shipping status will appear as part of your Google Cards. Regular Gmail users and subsequently Inbox by extension will also have that package tracking feature.

Well the good news for Yahoo users is that Yahoo has recently updated its iPhone app and with the update, the company has introduced a bunch of new features with package tracking being one of them. Users will now be able to track their packages without having to leave the app, which is no doubt a rather convenient feature.

According to Yahoo, “Now, you can view and track shipped packages in the “Yahoo Today” section of the app from sites including Amazon, eBay, Zappos, Target, Best Buy, and more. We’ll notify you when your package has shipped, when it’s scheduled to arrive, and what’s in your shipment.”

In addition to the new feature, users will also be able to customize their “Today” view, horoscopes, flight notification support from the likes of Orbitz and CheapTickets, and more. If you have yet to download or update your Yahoo Mail app on your iPhone, you can do so by heading on over to the iTunes App Store for the free download.
