Gmail update brings Oauth support for Yahoo and Microsoft email accounts


Gmail All Inboxes View tablet

Last year we saw Gmail updated to version 5.0 with the ability to add inboxes from Yahoo, Outlook, or any other POP/IMAP email accounts. It was a pretty big move, but one that may have been a little too light on security for some folks.

Today, Google has announced that they’ve officially brought Oauth support to Yahoo and Microsoft accounts. This means anyone using these can take advantage of added security features like 2-step verification and/or account recovery. It’s already available in the latest Gmail update which is already rolling out on the Google Play Store.
