Google Launches Light Gmail Go App


The Gmail Go app is the slimmed down version of the mainstream Gmail Android App.

But like other Go apps, Gmail Go doesn't consume as much storage space on the device.

Being a Go edition app, the download size of the Gmail Go app is much smaller than the regular app. Gmail Go weighs just around 9.51MB compared to 20.66MB of the regular app. The size goes up to 24.80 when installed, as opposed to 47.28MB for the regular app, so still almost half.

Prosecutors said Rahimi gave inmates copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials. Asked why his client had not expressed remorse, he called him "a complicated person".

The interface looks nearly exactly like the main app: a list of emails that you can tap and hold to select, a red title bar, a search icon on the top right, and a side menu with exactly the same options. Enjoy a smart inbox that keeps your messages safe and you organized. The interface looks largely similar to the original app, with the most visible change being in the "user profile" section that now sits on top of the title bar and does not display your profile picture and background image like that on the regular Gmail app. Even tapping the label icon next to the email's title shows the label selector like in the main app. There's also an option to report spam or mark as important. I would have expected formatting to not be implemented here, but turns out it is and it works as intended.

Google has launched the lightweight Gmail Go app for Android 8.1 devices (via FoneArena).

If we talk more about this Gmail Go app, it is not available for all the smartphones. The initial app release version is 8.1.28, same as the regular app probably to avoid version disparity. Once installed, the Gmail Go app can only be deleted via the Google Play Store and not from the Settings menu like other apps. You may recognize the little floating chat bubbles that you can drag around your phone as a mainstay of Android, but they were in fact invented in their modern form by Facebook back in 2013 as part of a now-defunct Android lock screen product called Facebook Home, which bundled Messenger chats with your SMS text messages for the first time.
