In December last year, Google had brought out the biggest update in the history of its official iOS client that brought radical changes and took it at par with the Android Gmail app. The features and changes have been such a massive hit that Google has introduced the same UI and features on Gmail for the mobile Web and on Gmail offline.
“Since launching the rebooted Gmail app for iPhone and iPad in December, we’ve heard from many of you that you like the redesigned UI, along with new features such as improved search and integration with Google Calendar. Today we’re rolling out a similar refreshed look to the Gmail mobile web app as well as Gmail Offline that includes many of these same changes,” Google said in a statement.
The updated mobile web apps are available for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire and BlackBerry. The improvements now features Gmail iOS’s improved search tool and powerful calender support and integration. For the users out there, these set of changes essentially mean that searches will have auto-complete predictions (just like you would normally on Desktop Gmail Web app). Also, with the updated web apps for the various mobile platforms, users will be able to easily RSVP to calendar invitations from the mobile web app itself.
As per Google’ s official statement, Google’s Gmail Offline App for Chrome, available as a free download from the Chrome Web Store, will also get the same UI and design overhaul as the mobile web apps.
Google made the changes after receiving so many comments from users who saw the redesigned interface released by Google this past December for iOS devices.
The Gmail 2.0 version comes with new look and features like multiple account support, profile picture in messages, new animation and better integration with Google+.
Users wishing to check out the new and redesigned mobile web apps can just fire up their favorite browsers on their Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or BlackBerry devices and heading up to the mobile website of Gmail. You can also get a feel of the new Gmail Offline Chrome app on your Desktop PC’s Chrome browser which allows users to reply, read and search mail without having an internet connection.
