You will find that dogecoin, litecoin, bitcoin, and ethereum are now all supported within the iOS app. That is great news because these four cryptocurrency types are the four most commonly traded and used in the online world.

Yahoo did say that the new cryptocurrency options are coming to the Android app as well. The only bad news is that we do not know when that will be offered on Android. If you are using Yahoo Finance on the desktop, you also might notice the cryptocurrency options are already present. Some people are still not seeing the cryptocurrency options on desktop. That means it still seems to be rolling out on the web. If you download the Yahoo Finance iOS app right now, the new cryptocurrency support should be there.
