Google officially announced Android 5.0 Lollipop last week, and now it appears the Gmail app is getting a new update to go along with it.

Android Police is reporting that the new app will be able to handle email accounts from other providers like Yahoo or Outlook, and will enable users to switch between accounts with a swipe or touch via drop-down.

It shows this in a Google-made video, which also shows off a new design for the app. Check the above link to get a look.

The app makes use of Lollipop's "Material Design," which is illustrated below.

Google has yet to officially announce the new Gmail features. Look for that pretty soon. The company hasn't even updated its Gmail blog or Gmail Google+ account since August and September respectively.
