Gmail has been one of the biggest names when it comes to the world of emails and communication. The service was started off by Google a long time ago, and over the past 12 years of its existence, Gmail has grown much larger and bigger than it was expected of them. When Google started off Gmail, it was a time where the competition was immense and the likes of Hotmail and Yahoo held the markets rather tight. The company has now crossed over a billion users, and keeps offering new updates. One such new update has just rolled out for the Gmail for Android app.
Gmail for Android now allows the users to do much more, and has introduced two new features in the latest update – Rich Text Formatting and Instant RSVP.
The Rich Text Formatting has been something that had been missing from the Gmail application for a very long time now, and the company has had this for the web variant since quite a long time. Google has now brought Gmail to the mobile users, as the Gmail for Android app got an update today.
Users can now bold, italic, underline, color and highlight the text. One major thing that is still missing in the Gmail for Android app is the ability to hyperlink text.
Another major introduction is that of instant RSVPs, and users can now respond their confirmations or rejections much easily, as any time they get an invite over Google Calendar or Microsoft Exchange, the users will directly see their schedule on the Gmail app, and the respond accordingly.
Competitor Microsoft’s Outlook application has had this feature since quite a long time in their mobile app. Better late than never though, as Gmail for Android is getting these updates and is getting better with every passing day.
As of now there are no details on when this might release for the iOS app.
