Security improvements for Microsoft and Yahoo accounts in the Gmail app for Android

Posted: 10 Jun 2015 01:45 PM PDT
We’re always working to make the Gmail app experience safer, including when people use non-Gmail email addresses. As part of that effort, today we’re launching Oauth support for all Yahoo and Microsoft accounts in the Gmail app for Android. By authenticating these non-Gmail accounts directly with Yahoo and Microsoft, the Gmail app for Android will allow individuals with Yahoo and Microsoft accounts to take advantage of security features like two-step verification and account recovery. Check it out now—download the latest version of the Gmail app for Android on Google Play.

Release track:
Rapid release and Scheduled release (gradual rollout)
