The latest update of Gmail for Android brought several changes and improvements to the app. One of the biggest change is they finally implemented the long-awaited unified inbox feature for all email accounts. Not only can you check your multiple Gmail accounts in “All Inboxes” view, but also view other POP/IMAP emails such as Yahoo and Hotmail, or Microsoft Exchange mail. Switching between accounts has become easier and faster in this update. You can also quickly read emails and write replies without having to switch between your accounts.
Before this, you can only use third-party email apps like Mailbox App by Dropbox. It is also very easy to login and switch between email accounts. But you can’t do too much on emails except getting Inbox Zero. People who are very keen on managing emails with tags, like myself, will need to go to Gmail again to do so, which is not very efficient. Now, we can all stick with the Gmail App for best experience and efficiency.
Here is the full change log for Google Gmail for Android. For full details, you can visit the Official Gmail Blog.
– Check and send email from Yahoo Mail, Outlook.com and all other email accounts right from the Gmail app.
– Improved tablet layout that includes faster switching between inbox categories and accounts.
– Additional improvements if you’re using Android Lollipop, like hiding sensitive lockscreen notifications.
