Gmail Android App Update Brings Ice Cream Sandwich Features to Honeycomb
[ Technology]

Google recently released an update for its Android app version of Gmail. The update, which brings the Gmail app up to version 4.0.5, gives Android 3.2 Honeycomb users some of the same features on their tablets that phone users with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich already have. According to the “What’s New” tab in Google Play, those features include:

  • Swipe to move between newer and older conversations
  • Tap your account to access recent labels
  • Set custom notifications for individual labels
  • Sync last 30 days of messages so you can read and search messages faster both online and offline

Phone users not fortunate enough to have Ice Cream Sandwich yet aren’t totally left in the dust, though. Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread users get “performance improvements” with their update to version 2.3.6. Also, 3rd-party app developers will get a spiffy new labels API .

You can download the update right now from the Google Play store.
