If you've been hovering over your Android-based device and waiting for Google to push out pinch-to-zoom capabilities to one of the best mobile e-mail clients on the market - well, your time has come.




Google have updated their Gmail app to version 4.2, which is now available to all devices sporting Android 4.0 or higher. The new version of Gmail offers pinch-to-zoom on emails with a single pinch gesture.


It also gives users the ability to swipe-to-delete, or swipe-to-archive an email. New additions to the app include "in-app video and photo attachment capability, and larger photo previews, along with a brand-new gallery view for emails with multiple image attachments."


All you should have to do is update your Gmail app through the Play store if you haven't already - or if the OS hasn't already automatically updated it like my Nexus 4 did this morning.
