Gmail mobile redesign brings features from web to iOS and Android

Last summer, Google rolled out a new redesign for Gmail on web. Though the redesign maybe rubbed some people the wrong way at first, we've had plenty of time to get used to it, as Google forced a switch for all Gmail for web users in the autumn. Now it's the mobile apps' turn, as Google has announced that a similar redesign will soon be landing on both iOS and Android.

Inbox isn’t Google’s only email app casualty this year

Yesterday, Google announced its decision to discontinue Inbox by Gmail, citing the fact that many of its features are now available in Gmail proper. With that in mind, it isn't surprising to see the purge continue, and now Google has announced that it will discontinue the Gmail Offline Chrome app as well. The shut down officially happens later this year.

Gmail confidential mode on mobile: How – and why – you should use it

Gmail confidential mode on mobile: How – and why – you should use it

Google announced today that Gmail's confidential mode has come to mobile devices. The feature launched on desktop earlier this year, and it allows senders to restrict things like forwarding, copying, and downloading the emails they send. Senders can also set emails to expire after a certain amount of time, and, in cases where extra security is necessary, lock a message with an SMS code.

Gmail Android, iOS apps can now disable conversation view

Gmail Android, iOS apps can now disable conversation view

Gmail has changed the face of email for better or worse. It has offered a free service that is putting even paid premium services out of business. It has pushed for a minimalist interface that made Yahoo! Mail look and feel like the Titanic. But perhaps one of its most controversial “innovations” is one that is both hated and loved: the conversation view. Google has conceded back in 2010 that not everyone is a fan but it only offered a toggle for Gmail on the web. Mobile users won’t feel so left out anymore now that they too will have that power.

Google promises it doesn’t read your email without your consent

Google promises it doesn’t read your email without your consent

Your email might not be safe from prying eyes, whether you’re using Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or Outlook. And especially if you’re using third-party email clients. A recent report revealed how some developers have no qualms about letting their employees read emails that pass through their apps. Google has responded with a blog post that explains how it has mechanisms in place to prevent such abuse. Except said mechanism doesn’t seem to protect users from such third-parties and, maybe, even from Google itself.

Google might not be scanning your emails but third-parties are

Google might not be scanning your emails but third-parties are

Email is one of the oldest and most sacred Internet services still in use. Despite attempts to kill it, it remains the backbone of communication over the Internet and, as such, is a treasure trove of personal data. Exactly because of that, and the threat of lawsuits and fines, Google has stopped its practice of letting its employees read emails. But while the search giant has promised to be good, it doesn’t seem to enforce that same standard on third-party apps and developers who surprisingly admit letting their employees read those precious emails.

Gmail gets high priority notifications on iOS

Gmail gets high priority notifications on iOS

It's pretty safe to say that most mobile users have a love/hate relationship with their notifications. There can be times where they're really handy, and others where they're nothing more than an annoyance. Notifications for email can be particularly frustrating, especially if you're receiving dozens or hundreds of them every day.
