Keep Tabs on Rio Medal Counts From Yahoo Mail

...

Yahoo is getting into the Olympic spirit with updates to its Mail service that help users keep track of the summer games.

The Web giant on Thursday updated Yahoo Mail with a real-time medal counter; look in the bottom left corner of the screen to monitor each country's accumulating rewards without leaving the inbox.

Meanwhile, the Mail news feed also now features "all things Summer Games, so you can stay on top of team updates and wins all from the convenience of your inbox," Yahoo Product Manager Keren Baruch wrote in a blog post.

These new features are available on desktop for Windows and Mac.

Also on the desktop and iOS, Yahoo is also offering some Olympics-themed stationary now through the end of the games, so you can jazz up your emails.

The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro officially kicks off tonight; the Opening Ceremony starts at 7:30 p.m. ET.

NBCOlympics.com has live streams, replays, and all sorts of extras. But you must be a cable TV subscriber to access it all. Like last year, NBC will allow viewers to watch 30 minutes of video before signing in.

Yahoo isn't the only tech company embracing the summer games. Samsung is selling a limited-edition Olympics-themed Galaxy S7 Edge and Apple has made some sweet-looking national pride Watch bands—available only in Brazil. Those hopping a flight to Rio de Janeiro can also snag free unlimited T-Mobile data (and free premium porn courtesy of PornHub) throughout the games.
