Gmail Go for Android arrives at Google Play Store

If you are completely impressed with the new Gmail Go app and have been using a low end Android smartphone, the Gmail Go application is already available on the Play Store which you can install right away on your device. Other Go apps that have been recently released include Files Go, Gboard Go, Google Go, Maps Go, and YouTube Go. So, Gmail Go is almost half in size than the regular Gmail app that we have been using for the past so many years. That doesn't mean someone with, say, an older Android device might not want a more frugal version of Gmail to maximize the use they get out of their phone without needing to upgrade.

Gmail Go comes with 15GB of free storage, this takes away the headache of deleting emails to save space.

In future, the giant will come up with more such Go edition apps of the available services so more people can explore the apps even if they have low end Android devices.

The lighter version of Gmail Go app is here and offers the same super faster performance of the original Gmail app. Gmail Go app also claims to block spam messages before it reaches your inbox. Nonetheless, it supports multiple accounts from Gmail and other email clients, including and Yahoo Mail. Interestingly, with Gmail Go you can read and respond both online & offline. The current Android 8.0 Oreo software, which released after the Essential Phone hit the market, was similarly not optimized for unique smartphone designs. Lastly, Gmail Go has launcher app shortcuts as well which will let you straight away jump to any of your account inboxes or composing a message. The interface looks largely similar to the original app, with the most visible change being in the "user profile" section that now sits on top of the title bar and does not display your profile picture and background image like that on the regular Gmail app. Officially they - and Gmail Go - are targeted at emerging markets, where cellular connections can either be slower than the U.S. and other countries enjoy, or prohibitively expensive.
