  • Gmail Go for low-end devices arrives on Google Play

We've seen the YouTube Go app get updated with double tap to seek controls and now Gmail Go has made its way onto the Play Store. The plan is to bring 1GB RAM phones with Android Go for which Google is already working with several smartphone manufacturers in India. You can download the most recent version of Google Phone from the Play Store now. The company will offer a "smarter" inbox, which will focus on messages from friends and family first, while social and promotional emails will be stacked separately.

Apparently, Google is looking to enhance the design of its upcoming operating system, which is also expected to be a complete overhaul of its software, in a bid to attract more iOS users and make them switch to Android, reports Bloomberg citing sources close to Google. Yes, just like normal smartphones, with every Gmail you attach to the services, you will get 15GB of free space on the Google Drive so you can store up things on Cloud platform using this service. Android Police reported that the size of app is 24.80MB compared to 47.28MB for the regular app.

Google has launched the lightweight Gmail Go app for Android 8.1 devices (via FoneArena). Receive notifications when mail arrives, then read and respond both online & offline.

Synchronize Multiple Accounts: Similar to the desktop version, users can add outlook.com, Yahoo Mail and other IMAP and POP email ids.


The ultra-light app works just like the original Gmail app but without putting much pressure on the RAM. Lastly, Gmail Go has launcher app shortcuts as well which will let you straight away jump to any of your account inboxes or composing a message.

Opening an email loads the entire contents, including images, and gives the same options as the regular app, including reporting as spam, unsubscribing, marking as important, and moving to another label.

Overall, the Gmail Go interface looks nearly exactly like the main app - there's the multi-select option, and then there's also swipe gestures available.
