Google has added Gmail 2.0, a new function available only for Gmail Android applications and iOS devices. This version of android is said to vary based on the Operating System.
For users having device with Android Ice Cream Sandwich or above devices, the version comes with a convenient "swipe" feature. In addition, the user can resize messages automatically to fit the screen of the device and eventually zoom it to enable easier reading. This means that a user can continuously view his inbox messages without manually opening any! The application also gives access to view larger photo previews.
The negative aspect that surrounds these products is that they aren't available to users with Android phones running older versions like pre-Ice-Cream-Sandwich. This is the company's way of upgrading to newer devices and software.
Talking about iOS devices, the application also supports multiple Google accounts, each of which has its own icons and notification tag for unread messages. When the user types a keyword search in Gmail, the application automatically suggests recommended keyword phrases. Users can also respond to the calendar invites right within the application. In addition, unlike the older version with a dark patterned view, Gmail 2.0 for iOS interface has been improved and made user friendly.
Notwithstanding these features, browser enabled Gmail enables the users to dial and receive phone calls respectively via a browser plug in. The overall features of Gmail 2.0 make it a trusted user friendly and the next generation android product. The recent updates are certainly a reason to smile for Android users.
