Google Gmail App Update

Your Gmail app is no longer just a Gmail app — it’s also a Yahoo and Outlook app too. Google on Monday revealed that its newest update to its Gmail app will let you view accounts from rival email services such as Yahoo and Outlook so you’ll be able to manage them all in one place without having to switch to different inboxes.

“Starting today you’ll be able to view all your mail at once, regardless of which account it’s from, using the new ‘All Inboxes’ option,” Google explains. “This way you can read and respond to all your messages without having to hop between accounts.”

Other features added with the new update include threaded conversation views for Yahoo, and other IMAP/POP accounts; improvements to Gmail’s autocomplete search functionality; more responsive Material Design-style animations; and larger attachment previews to give you a better idea of what files you’re being sent.
