Google has been visually refreshing the look of a number of its Android apps recently, and now it looks as though Gmail is next on the list. Along with the aesthetic overhaul, the latest update to Gmail for Android also contains a few notable feature additions as well.
Android Police has gone hands on with Gmail 5.0 for Android and noticed that Google has added in support for Yahoo and Outlook.com. Previously, the app only supported its own mail service, but now it appears Google is looking to fully consolidate Android email into its Gmail app.
In a leaked video (below), the company also mentions there are other mail services supported beyond the aforementioned two including IMAP and POP3. Reports suggest Google has enhanced the app with Exchange ActiveSync, which as some have suggested, may prevent some users from being forced to flip back and forth between multiple Android mail services.
As for visual updates, expect to see Google’s new look throughout the app with refreshed icons, a new mail page layout and a number of other visual tweaks.
Gmail 5.0 isn’t officially available just yet but many expect it to hit when Android Lollipop arrives in the next few weeks. At this point, there is no details on the iOS version, but most seem to think it will get a fresh coat of paint and similar feature enhancements.
