TouchPal, Chinese keyboard app by Chinese developer CooTek, today announced a strategic partnership with Yahoo that puts Yahoo’s mobile search capabilities into the hands of TouchPal’s Android users.

Named “Yahoo Search in Apps”, the new feature allows TouchPal users to access Yahoo’s search engine directly from the keyboard app without the need to switch to a browser. Search results include links, images and videos, as well as the ability to translate text into 40 languages. What’s more, whether your’e using the TouchPal Keyboard with email, text or any other app, anyone can share a link from the search results, with just one click.

Yahoo Search in Apps will be released initially in the U.S. to give more than 16 million TouchPal Android users in the country direct access to Yahoo Search through the mobile keyboard.
