Google offers a “Go” variant of the most popular app for low power devices. This week, Gmail Go is quietly available for download to all users, regardless of device. On the Play Store..
The list of application Play Stores is as follows: Almost the sameHowever, Google has specified a way for the Go variant to deliver “Gmail you love, now lighter and as fast.” That said, Google hasn’t updated the Go screenshots.
The only difference from the app icon is the red “Go” badge at the bottom. When launched, the app will be visually identical where everything is placed and where it is placed. Main list emails can be swiped with customizable left and right actions, but support for multiple accounts and different inbox configurations.
One of the other differences is how UI elements are not promoted. There are no shadows because there is no layering. Rather, Gmail Go uses a white outline for the search field and an elongated composition FAB, but scrolls down to a circle.
In addition, there is a very clear upper limit on the frame rate, so scrolling and sliding the navigation drawer to open will result in a perceptible delay. This is probably a performance optimization for processors and RAM-limited devices.
When you access a regular Gmail list, the Play Store records how “similar apps” are available. This happened later this week and Gmail Go was installed on various Pixel devices running Android 11 in the US and Europe.
This is consistent with the way other Go apps are available to all users. Google Go, Gallery Go, Google Maps Go,and Google Maps Go navigation.. Assistant go And YouTube Go Currently, it is the only app that does not support all devices.
Gmail Go may not make much sense for non-readers to download, but the options are great.
