Gmail 4.2.1 Update Out For Android 4.0 And Later
Remember that huge upgrade to Gmail for Android we wrote about last month? Looks like Google was merely putting the finishing touches on the app before releasing it to everyone. While the big new features — pinch-to-zoom and swipe-to-archive — only work on devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and above, it looks like all Android devices received the requisite performance improvements and bug fixes.
Smaller changes to the Gmail app include removing the message text size option (because pinch to zoom is now present), contextual unread counts for each label (as opposed to just the inbox), and a permanent anchor for the “inbox” label on the drop-down menu at the top of the app. Oh, and praise all that is holy: attachments are back where they belong – at the bottom of the message.
Head to the Play Store to grab the latest version of Gmail now. And remember, this is only for Android 4.0 devices! You can also check out this post by the Gmail team on Google+ to learn more about the new update.
