Gmail for Android has been updated, which includes quite a few changes and improvements. The new Gmail for Android app is now capable of saving attachments directly to your Google Drive account, instead of saving it onto your smartphone, and then shifting it over to Drive. A full list of changes is below:

  • Save to Google Drive - Instead of downloading attachments to your device which takes up valuable space, you can now save attachments directly to Google Drive. Files saved to Drive are easily accessible from any smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • Spam explanations - Have you ever wondered why a message ended up in spam? You'll now find an explanation at the top of every spam message.
  • Improved RTL support - If you're an English speaker, you're used to reading sentences from left-to-right. But there are a lot of languages out there that are written from right-to-left (RTL), such as Arabic, Hebrew and Persian. If you're a speaker of one of these languages, Gmail on Android now looks and feels the way you'd expect with profile pictures and the navigation menu on the right instead of the left.
  • Faster access to the side navigation menu - It's easier to get wherever you need to go in the app. While reading messages, you can now swipe from the left edge (or right edge for RTL languages) to quickly access your accounts and labels. You'll also find Settings, Help, and Feedback in the side menu.
