Google has recently pushed out an new update for the Gmail for iOS app which bumps its version number to v5.0.3. The new update is being labelled as “the biggest overhaul of the app in nearly four years.”
Apart from bringing aesthetic changes which makes the app look quite similar to the one seen on the Android smartphones, the update brings a few features which were long overdue.
The search engine giant says “it’s the Gmail you know and love, with a fresh new look, sleeker transitions and some highly-requested features. It’s a lot faster, too.”
Here are three new features which Apple iPhone users can make use of.
Embarrassed about an accidental message or a typo in the email you've sent to your colleague? Well, with the new update, you can undo it thereby saving the humiliation you’d have to face otherwise. This much-needed feature has been there in the Android app for a while now and finally makes its way to the iOS app.
Faster and improved search in the app
The updated app is now way more faster and offers improved spelling suggestions. This can come in quite handy when you accidentally feed in a typo. For example, if you had to search for flight but you enter 'flighht' accidentally, a spelling suggestion would show up.
Swipe to archive or delete
Most of the iOS apps, for sake of intuitiveness offer swiping gestures. The latest app to join the club is the Gmail app. After installing the update, users can simply swipe to archive or delete items in your inbox.
