After the big assault on its Voices service last year, Yahoo has been on the road to redemption. In an effort to help those who struggle sending large files via email, the service announced on Tuesday that it would be teaming up with Dropbox to let users share and store files much more easily.
This integration allows Yahoo Mail users to bypass the original 25MB file size limit, and easily send large files such as photos and videos. Of course, users can also send typical files such as documents, etc. As another plus, the combined service lets users access their Dropbox files from Yahoo Mail, or files uploaded via Yahoo Mail from Dropbox.
Dropbox integration is now available through the browser version of Yahoo Mail in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. Users who do not already have a Dropbox account can now create one through Yahoo Mail.
By all appearances, Dropbox will operate seamlessly while inside Yahoo Mail, making for an integration very similar to the Gmail/Google Drive one offered by Google. For more information on creating a Dropbox account through Yahoo, visit the Yahoo Mail Blog.
This partnership is expected to provide many solutions to Yahoo Mail users, and Dropbox being as popular as it is, could really make a change for the struggling mail service.
Does this new feature change your opinion on Yahoo Mail? Will you consider switching?
