New Gmail update for Android brings a unified inbox, conversation view and much more
Google has just announced a new update to Gmail for Android that will make it easier to manage multiple accounts at one time, especially for folks who use non-Gmail accounts. Also in the update, Google has added improvements to the auto-complete feature when searching for keywords, more fluid animations and better Drive integration.
Most notably, Gmail is getting a unified inbox option witch will allow you to view all of your inboxes in one place – even for Yahoo and Outlook accounts. If you’d like to access the new feature, you’ll need to slide out the navigation drawer and select the “All Inboxes” option. Additionally, the new update brings the popular Conversation View feature to all of your connected Yahoo, Outlook and other IMAP/POP accounts.
Google has also improved the auto-complete feature when searching for keywords, which will allow you to find the correct email even faster. A few other fixes have made their way to Gmail, including more responsive animations when you open and close a conversation, larger attachment previews and the ability to save emails to Google Drive with just a single tap.
Google didn’t clarify when the update would begin rolling out, so it may be a few days before it makes its way to your device.
