Gmail updated for android with Material Design
Google is steadily rolling out the Material Design and language to all of its applications. Earlier present week it brought up an updation to its Drive application, now the trendy one to join the party is Gmail. In addition to the re-customized interface, the Gmail application now, as expected, supports Exchange of emails.
The addition of support for Exchange or IMAP/POP essentially alters you to add any non-Google email account – from suppliers like Yahoo, Outlook, iCloud Mail and others – to the Gmail application. It’s a welcome customization, as the email client on Android don’t have many features and it wasn’t even pleasing to look at.
Among other biggest changes, the application now covers the Material Design interface which Google launched with the Android 5.0 Lollipop. One of the biggest detectable change you would see is the absence of gray color paint that was present in the previous versions. Also, the application now shows bolded and un-bolded texts in emails, which helps to know if the email has been read.
Among the other changes, Gmail has also provided a facelift to its navigation bar, making it smoother to switch between several different email accounts. The top display presents the cover photo from the Google+ account, again this feature is somewhat similar to the Inbox application, the company released last month.
