Google has just updated its Gmail app for Android devices, bringing a unified inbox so you can view emails from multiple accounts at the same time.
“Starting today you’ll be able to view all your mail at once, regardless of which account it’s from, using the new All Inboxes option”, Google announced. “This way you can read and respond to all your messages without having to hop between accounts”.
Google brings unified inbox to Gmail
The new unified inbox is a handy feature to view all your emails from multiple accounts. Business customers and consumers for example will no longer have to switch between accounts to see their mails with the Gmail app. It supports emails from Yahoo, Outlook and other services in the updated version.
The features added bring Google up to par with other email clients usually preinstalled on Android smartphones and third-party apps available from the Google Play Store.
Threaded conversations and better Drive integration
To make it even more convenient for non-Gmail users, Google has now added threaded conversation views to Yahoo and Outlook mail. This means that related mails with the same subject are grouped together in a single conversation, making it easier to follow all the various replies.
Google has also improved the auto-complete, to make it easier to find what you are looking for.
“The new Gmail app for Android has better auto-complete, so you can find what you need even faster”, Google said.
Other features in the latest version include responsive animations, larger attachment previews and the ability to save files to Google Drive with a single tap.
The update is available today from the Google Play Store, however it may take a while to get pushed to your Android devices. You can always just head to Google Play and performa a manual check.
