Google’s been updating apps most of its apps,recently to fall in line with its new material design philosophy, and the results have been impressive. There are a few apps it appears Google’s saving for the final Lollipop release though – Gmail 5.0 among them.
Today, the Gmail app for Android is getting updated with a more modern style, sleeker transitions, and a few other handy improvements. The new Gmail is also one of the first to incorporate much of “Material” — Google’s new design methodology for Android 5.0 “Lollipop”, which the company first unveiled at the Google I/O developer conference. The app makes heavy use of Material’s color palate, with liberal use of layers, and many of the design elements from Inbox, Google’s new standalone app that aims to re-invent the email app.
Here I Introduce all the New things about Gmail for Android
1.New design :
The first thing you will notice is the big, beautiful red action bar at the top of the app that blends into the status bar. New Gmail feels much cleaner, using the new material design aesthetic, introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop. More white space and the flatter look bring Apple’s iOS to mind while remaining decidedly Google. A small tweak to circular icons for your contacts (as opposed to squares in the older version) adds to the feeling of space, making the new version feel roomier.
Probably the biggest change to the new Gmail is the ability to add email accounts from other services. This is a big step toward making the Gmail app for Android your go-to email client.
2.New swiping Options :
In the old Gmail app you only had the option to delete emails with a swipe. But here you have a option of choosing either to delete or to Archive the message and use that as default.
In Detail here you can set it to either Archive, which saves the email in your account, or Delete the email entirely. Once you’ve made your selection, every time you swipe an email, it will default to that setting. Again, this is not a groundbreaking change, but it’s great to finally have the option.
3.Inbox Interaction :
From with the compose window, after tapping that fun little red button, you get a traditional email compose layout, but one that has again, been given a Material Design makeover. It’s simple, has an action bar with attachment/send/menu buttons, drop down menus to give you cc/bcc options, and helpful suggestions as you type out an address or contact’s name.
Another change is how many of the most common actions have been moved out of hidden app menus and into the Gmail app interface. In your inbox, there’s a button at the top-right for quickly moving emails (or groups of emails) to a different folder
The New Gmail app doesn’t have incredible changes but this new features make things easy to access and use it. The ability to access other non-Gmail accounts is undoubtedly a huge plus , reducing the number of apps you need to open to check your email.
