Google Launches Light Gmail Go App

Gmail Go also blocks spam even before it goes to your Inbox, but of course you won't be able to see those that were accidentally marked as spam.

If you're buying a new phone, and not buying an iPhone, the choice is pretty clear: Google's Pixel phones.

Google recently announced Android Oreo Go Edition, a light version of its operating system which can run smoothly on low-end phones with less than 1 GB of RAM (note that it is different from Android One which is just a stock version of Android supported directly by Google).

The APK file size of the Gmail Go app is significantly smaller than the regular Gmail app; it's 9.51MB versus 20.66MB. 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. The app supports most of the basic features of Gmail as well as offers you multiple account support to let you set up both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses, such as, Yahoo Mail, or other IMAP/POP email accounts, instantly. Among many high-profile components and features is the device's operating system, namely the latest version of Android, the 8.0 release codenamed Oreo.

Tapping the head gives you options like back to call, mute, speakerphone, and end call. This feature works online and it will not work offline just like the respond feature on your device. Gmail Go comes with 15GB of free storage, this takes away the headache of deleting emails to save space. All the apps of Google will store your data on cloud with full security. The latest one to become available for Android devices running on Oreo 8.1 is Gmail Go.

If we talk more about this Gmail Go app, it is not available for all the smartphones. Officially they - and Gmail Go - are targeted at emerging markets, where cellular connections can either be slower than the United States and other countries enjoy, or prohibitively expensive. However, it is worth noting that the app is now not compatible with devices running lower versions of Android.
