Google updates Gmail for Android; lets you reply from notifications
Users, who are using the Gmail app on an Android 4.1+ device, can reply and archive messages right from notifications with one quick tap.
New Delhi: Google has rolled out a new update to its Gmail app for Android, thereby saving your time on the actions - reply, archive, and search - you often use. Users, who are using the Gmail app on an Android 4.1+ device, can reply and archive messages right from notifications with one quick tap.
When you expand the notification, you will find a box containing options to reply and archive. The new app also introduces faster search and better search suggestions so you can find your messages quickly online and offline. Users can get the latest version of Gmail on Google Play.
"You can combine this with existing notification features like the ability to customise which messages you receive notifications for and set up different sounds for individual labels. So if you filter and label all the messages from your mom, you could set a ringtone to let you know you received a new mail from her and then quickly reply (because we know what can happen when you ignore your mother!)," said Andy Huang, Software Engineer, in a blog post.
