Gmail 5.0 for Android leaks with Material Design, support for other email accounts
Google's upcoming Gmail 5.0 for Android is reportedly ready to debut soon, boasting neat new features and functionality to enhance the experience.
More details have surfaced in this regards, claiming that Gmail 5.0 for Android will debut when Android 5.0 Lollipop is officially ready to start its journey. Google has just unveiled the latest version of its popular mobile operating system last week, with the new Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player serving as the launch vehicles for Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The new OS version will start rolling out to the Nexus family and the Google Play Edition (GPE) lineup soon, with other devices not part of these lineups set to get it next year.
Google has also been updating plenty of its apps to bring them in line with its new Material Design policy, but Gmail is reportedly reserved for the final Android 5.0 Lollipop release.
Google has yet to make an announcement in regards to the next version of Gmail for Android, but a new report now sheds some light on the matter, revealing exciting details. Android Police claims to have some information about the upcoming Gmail 5.0 for Android, which will reportedly get a neat overhaul.
"While we won't be distributing the updated Gmail app until the official update is released, we will be sharing a goody from the new onboarding process, which shows some of the new awesomeness coming to the app in its overhaul," reports Android Police.
"Specifically, it looks like Google's gearing up to handle all your email with Gmail, not just your Gmail account."
If this turns out to be accurate, it means that Gmail users will be able to check their Yahoo or Outlook email, for instance, straight within Gmail. This would be considerably easier and more convenient, and would surely be a greatly appreciated option.
Moreover, Gmail 5.0 for Android will reportedly boast a fresh new look as well, with round avatars, cleaner compose screen, new iconography, and more. Gmail 5.0 should sport notable visual enhancements, and Android Police offers a glimpse into what's to come through a demo video.
Keep in mind, however, that Google has made no official announcement so far, which means that it all remains in the rumor state for now. If Gmail 5.0 is indeed set to roll out with Android 5.0 Lollipop, it shouldn't be too long until we get the real scoop straight from the source. We'll keep you up to date as soon as we learn more, so stay tuned.
