Google on Monday announced a new feature that should make things a heck of a lot easier for folks who manage multiple e-mail accounts on Android. The firm released an update to its Gmail for Android client that now allows you to view “All inboxes” in one place.
That’s perfect for me. I currently have both my work and personal Gmail accounts loaded on my phone and, until today, had to tap the menu to toggle back and forth between each inbox. Now, I can view all of my messages from both accounts in one place. It’s totally optional, too, so if you don’t want to see work e-mails on the weekends, you can still manually switch between accounts and avoid the “All Accounts” option altogether.
The service isn’t just limited to Gmail accounts. The introduction of a new Gmail app for Android in November added support for Yahoo, Exchange and more, so those will all populate inside of the application, too, complete with a new conversation view.
Google said users should also notice larger attachment previews, more responsive animations, improved search functions and more.
