Other aspects of the mail app have been improved, leading to faster app utility overall, as well as faster scrolling, and much faster notification from Gmail than before.
I think Google plans to eventually have everyone using the Inbox web app instead of the Gmail website (although you use the same account and email for both).
So to answer your question, Google did update Gmail to a more modern, nicer UI.
Unfortunately, this new Gmail refresh still doesn’t include a unified inbox, so you’ve got to switch between personal and work accounts and view them individually.
That alone means I’ll probably be sticking with other email apps for the time being.
To make sure your Gmail contacts are up to date every day, Evercontact works continually in the background and lets you know of any contact that it can improve, allowing you to automatically accept these changes, or manually approve them.
To create a brand new address book without an ounce of effort, you can have Evercontact analyze your past email to detect and recover all of your missing or out-of-date contacts and automatically update them in your new address book. Focused Inbox shows you only the important emails and puts everything else into an “other” tab.And the calendar app gained the ability to display travel reservations and package delivery details.Google also notes that spelling suggestions have been added, and users can now swipe on an email to archive or delete an email.The Gmail application is free, requires i OS 8 or newer, and is a 197 MB download.But at the time, neither of these options worked for Google / Gmail accounts — only for and Office 365 accounts. Today Microsoft announced that it going to be rolling out Gmail support to Windows Insiders over the next few weeks before a wider release to all consumers.
