Gmail 5.0 starts its official roll-out - Material Design and support for all email providers
The newest Gmail app update (finally) adds support for 3rd party email providers – such as Yahoo, Outlook, and any other provider, who supports POP/IMAP (read: most, if not all). Aside from this pretty significant upgrade, the app also gets a visual refresh, to fall in line with Android Lollipop's Material Design looks – everything looks “flatter”, while colors are brighter, and animations assist in helping the user find their bearings.
Gmail is not the first app to receive Material Design – so far, we've had updates for Chrome, Newsstand, Play Store, and Wallet, all slowly easing us into the new design language, giving us a peak at what we should expect from Android 5.0.
Do you have the new Gmail app yet? Enjoying the new design?
