At a press event detailing the company’s mobile strategy, Yahoo unveiled the first official Android Flickr application.

While there are many third party Flickr applications for the Android platform, this new app is the company’s first official release for the Android platform, and follows on the previously released Flickr for iOS.

The app features a custom camera experience interface that lets user’s select custom viewfinder aspect ratios for different photographic applications. Also present is the ability to name photos as they are taken, as well as add metadata to the image. Geolocation data is added automatically by the application.

There is also an instant upload feature, which allows users to share photos automatically.

Yahoo also unveiled Photo Session, a feature that generates a unique URL that Flickr users can share with up to 10 people. They can then browse through the photo album at the same time as each other, almost like watching the same live streaming video.
