The Gmail Android app has been updated to version 4.7.2, which brings users a feature that’s already available in the desktop version of Gmail, and that is automatically showing images in emails.
Back in December, Google announced that all its Gmail app versions, including desktop and mobile will get the security feature – basically Google is serving images from its own proxy servers now, which means email senders can’t use images for malicious purposes – and it’s now time for the Android application to be updated (see following image).
Android Police has already pulled the APK which measures 4.7MB, is signed by Google and can be already downloaded (see Source link below). Alternatively, you can download it directly from the Google Play Store – the Gmail app has been updated on January 8, the store says, although it hasn’t updated the “What’s new” information yet to reflect the new additions.
If you’d still like not to have images automatically shown in your email, you have a settings option to disable the feature even after the update to Gmail 4.7.2.

no it doesn’t – if you give consent to use your information then it is not theft.
Still better than some hacker getting away with your data. :P
That’s one of the most ignorant comments I’ve heard in a long time. Grow up, little boy.
Ironic you haven’t actually tried snapchat.
How would you know what I have or haven’t done?
well have you.
Yes I have. What’s that got to do with anything?
then why do you use email
or even use a messaging service if youre too much of a dinosuar for snapchat
Ummm… because I’m not a spotty faced 13 yr old who thinks if it’s not “social media” it’s not cool?
Anyway, I’m done with you.
