Stock Android email app now available on Google Play

Google recently decided to release the stock Android email app via Play Store - thus increasing the number of its own apps that are made available on Google Play (including Camera, Calendar, Drive, Hangouts, Keep, and so on).

The Android email app will appear as an update for most owners of a Nexus or Google Play Edition device. It seems that there are some compatibility issues, though - because, according to Google, the Play Editions of HTC One (M7) and Samsung Galaxy S4 can’t receive the updated app. Anyhow, if you can receive it, the changelog includes: enhanced security for Gmail accounts, printing, easier account setup flow, and unspecified bug fixes.

As some of you may already know, the stock Android email app enables you to access email services beyond Google's Gmail. Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail and others are supported. The app can be found at the source link below.

There are no innocent parties. Data mining is here to stay.

If you want privacy use 256 bits encryption.

And if you feel so insecure when I point out the sad state of personal data rights, maybe you should do something other than get on my case.

+1
We care about data mining cause my job revolve around the net. It brings food to our table. We dont know who or what is spying on our data. We dont know how are they using it. And thats creepy.
His dumb comments suits a dumb phone.
