Finally, Google’s Gmail app for Android smartphones is enhancing overall user experience by taking advantage of the operating system’s notification feature, adds quick reply, archive and UI enhancements on drop-down notification window.
Article written by Carlo Raphael Diokno – Consumers on Android ecosystem love Gmail, it’s the core feature of Google which lets them sign it to other Google services.
And finally, Google has rolled out an update to enhance the overall Gmail experience on its own mobile operating system.
The latest Gmail for Android update focuses on notification. The search giant introduced the new software last Monday, but keep in mind that new features are available only on Android Jelly Bean devices.
As mentioned by Google’s Play Store Gmail page, the new Gmail app on Android lets users reply, archive or delete message or messages right from notifications, so there’s no need to open the application. For Android Ice Cream Sandwich-equipped devices and up, users are now allowed to search faster even without internet connection. For Android 2.2 and up phones, Gmail now allows “Labels API” for developers planning to tap Gmail onto their own app.
Users can update the Gmail app for Android by visiting the Google Play Store and visiting “My Apps” section.
It looks like Google is focusing on newer Android versions, indirectly forcing some users to upgrade to a new smartphone in case their current phone is stuck with older Android versions like Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich.
