Google’s Gmail app for Android is more than just an app for viewing Gmail messages. You can also add Exchange, IMAP, or POP email accounts from other services… and starting today you can view messages from all of your email accounts in one place.
Google has updated the Gmail app with a unified inbox, among other things.
Now you can add your Yahoo.com, Outlook.com, school, or work accounts and view messages from all of your accounts at once using the “All inboxes” view.
Among other things, this lets you use Gmail-style conversation views even with non-Gmail accounts.
Google is also updating the search feature with auto-complete improvements, adding more responsive animations, and showing larger previews of files that are attached to messages. You can also save attachments to your Google Drive account with a single tap.
The Gmail app for Android isn’t the only game in town. Microsoft recently launched an Outlook app for iOS and Android, allowing you to view Gmail, Outlook, and other accounts. And Google offers its own Gmail alternative, called Inbox.
