Gmail for Android update with 6 new features

Last month Google updated its mobile version of Gmail for iOS to include a new Google Plus feature, but the team behind the app has been hard at work on a new version of the app, and with it brought half a dozen new features, but only for Android.

The latest Gmail for Android update comes with 6 new features and went live on the Google Play Store yesterday. The new features are as follows: Images now show automatically, you can now set up your Out of Office Autoreply setting through the app, the ability to send or download any file type, such as documents, PDF and zip files.

That’s not all, as you can also attach multiple files with Android 4.3 and above, print emails and attachments with Android 4.4 KitKat and higher, and finally, performance is enhanced for lower-end Android devices running 4.0 and higher.

It is hard to say which of these new features Gmail for Android users will appreciate the most, but the ability to save to Google Drive is a big plus for the latest version of the app. You can see a couple of screenshots of the Gmail for Android May update, more of which you can find here.

Looking at some of the reviews on the Play Store there are some users who feel that there is more to come, as the app feels half-hearted. Having said that, there is no denying that this app just keeps getting better. If you have yet to update to the latest version of Gmail for Android, then please do so and let us know your thoughts.
