Google on Monday updated Gmail for Android, bringing some of the features exclusive to Jelly Bean, such as swipe to archive, over to users stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich. The new version, 4.2.1, is largely aimed at making the mobile experience easier to digest, with easy resizing being a particularly sought after feature because it makes viewing and reading easier on smaller screens.
Additionally, Gmail on Android now makes it easier for users to view photo attachments. When you open a message, thumbnails will now be viewable, which you can simply tap on to go to a gallery. And users can also attach videos that are captured on their device, which is a pretty convenient way to share with friends and family.
