Posted by at 10:30 am on November 5, 2014

Google has re-envisioned Gmail for Android 5.0 Lollipop and made it a more robust app thanks to several new tools. The overhauled application adopts Material Design, which is the new design language seen across many Android apps.

It also adds some key features. Primarily, Gmail adds in-app support for other email services. Gmail 5.0 lets users of Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, Outlook.com, and other POP3/IMAP4 email services add their accounts directly to the Gmail app. Gmail can also now support separate, employer-based Exchange accounts in addition to the user’s Gmail account.

The various accounts can be viewed separately or together. Gmail 5.0 also adds a number of new swiping gestures for archiving and replying to messages. Gmail 5.0 is built into devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The new Gmail app will be made available to handsets running Android 4.0 and up in the next few days.
