Similar to how chat heads pull up a drop-down menu of recent chats for Messenger and other Android SMS apps, Google Phone's chat heads let you exit the phone app and maneuver around your home screen, with a little circular bubble on the screen indicating that the call is still ongoing.
Google has rolled out its Gmail Go app, a lighter and smarter version of the original Gmail app for Android. Of course, the prime objective of the Gmail Go app is to provide Gmail access amidst using less RAM and data.
It baffles me that something as important as parental controls isn't built into Android and that Google's solution for the problem, Family Link, was only officially released a year ago and is still limited to countries you can count on one hand: US, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and now Canada is joining the fold. This lighter version of the regular Gmail app which is named Gmail Go, is presently available only for the web users. So, Gmail Go is almost half in size than the regular Gmail app that we have been using for the past so many years.
Despite the smaller size, the Go version of Gmail app works a lot like the original app, and also comes with some additional features and some design tweaks here and there. Its latest APK file is also available for download through APK Mirror. However, while Android Go devices may be meant to proliferate in developing markets, they're ironically much harder to find in the US. 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. It basically keeps you away from spam emails and in turn, your account stays safe and clutter free. Receive notifications when mail arrives, then read and respond both online & offline.
The Gmail Go app is basically a lighter version of the Gmail app, but supports nearly all the basic features of the main app, including multiple account support and letting you set up non-Gmail accounts such as Yahoo mail, Outlook.com or any other IMAP/POP accounts.
