Google launches Gmail Go for Android


Over the past few weeks and even months, many Pixel users have been reporting the availability of over-the-air or OTA updates bringing the phone up to Android version 8.1.0, and Google has finally released an official list of the bug fixes, changes, and updates that users will notice in the latest build. We've asked Google for more information about the app's feature set, and what exactly is it that Go does to reduce the burden on low-end smartphones. 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.

All of these similarities honestly make you question why the main Gmail app needs to be double the size. Also, it appears that Gmail Go is not yet available for download in all countries. Despite its lightweight build, the Gmail Go app provides you with an advanced inbox that categorises social and promotional emails under different tabs to help you focus on important messages first.

Meanwhile, you can visit Google Play to download and test the Gmail Go app on your Android 8.1 device. You can also set up multiple accounts on Gmail Go, it basically lets you set up both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses -, Yahoo Mail, or other IMAP/POP email.

Less Spam: Google promises that Gmail Go blocks Spam even before it hits your inbox.

The lighter version of Gmail Go app is here and offers the same super faster performance of the original Gmail app. In simpler terms, Gmail Go is almost half the size of the regular Gmail app.

The other significant step forward will be deeper integration of Google Assistant enabling the app developers also to use the technology in their apps. This feature works as online and offline so you can directly read and respond to the emails right from the home screen of your entry level Android Go smartphone.

In fact, according to numerous reports, Gmail Go clocked in at a 9.51 MB download, and takes up roughly 25 MB of space on a device, compared with Gmail's 20.66 MB download, and 47 MB storage space.
