The new version of Gmail was developed for Android 5.0. Thus, supporting the new Material Design: Google’s new design language for applications and web. Android Police has an intallable APK file of the app. It is a final version that users can install. Android Police also notes that the software is sent automatically to Android users. However, this may take several days, because such a deployment usually goes in phases.
Google had already announced that its new Gmail app would also have support for IMAP and Exchange. The application is thereby more versatile as a general e-mail application. It is also possible to directly log in with an account from Yahooor Outlook.com.
In addition to expanding the Gmail app Google recently released Inbox, a smart email application. These bundles emails that look alike and have the ability to ‘snooze’ e-mails. Inobx supports currently only Gmail and the app can only be used with an invitation.
