Google has just broke the news that they’ve updated their Gmail application on Android-based handsets. The new update is available right now, and brings with it plenty of cool features. For example, message actions now stick to the top of the display as you scroll up and down, and you can now view previous messages far more easily. That is, if you’ve got a device running Android 2.2.
As you scroll through a conversation, your most important message actions will now float at the top of the screen.
You can now show and hide quoted text to reveal the previous message to a reply. Similar to the desktop version of gmail, you will be able to decide if the previous replies will be available to see, making it a lot less cluttered.
Now including limited support for Priority Inbox. If you’ve enabled Priority Inbox via the desktop version of Gmail, you’ll see an “Important” label that shows all messages flagged as important. You can even add a shortcut to “Important” to your home screen. Priority Inbox has been a very popular feature so far in Gmail and people who are used to the desktop version will much appreciate it on their Android Devices.
