Gmail Go for low-end devices arrives on Google Play


What is even more interesting to emerge out of these rumours/reports is that Google is keen on attracting Apple customers towards Android. The interface of the new app is also quite identical to the original Gmail for Android, though you may notice the change in the user profile section that sits on top of the title bar and displays your profile photo and background image on the regular Gmail app.

What's unlikely to change much is Android's nagging problem: Most of the billion-plus Android devices globally run outdated versions of the operating system, exposing security holes and holding back Google's newest mobile innovations.

In 2018, most of the Android smartphones are expected to launch phones in the similar design to the flagship of Apple, the iPhone X. Whether we like it or not, Apple has impressed the world with the aesthetics of his last-born, the iPhone X. And all that we know for the moment about the Huawei P20 confirms these remarks. By embracing the iPhone X style notch design, Google is looking to make its presence felt in the flagship and premium segment. That will likely support new features, helping Android device makers keep up with similar Apple technology. Google is already working with several smartphone manufacturers in India to bring 1GB RAM phones with Android Go - an operating system designed for entry-level devices.

Setting up the stage for Android Oreo (Go Edition), Google has now released the Gmail Go app. Bloomberg said the OS refresh is being called Android P and will enable developers to integrate Google's voice-activated technology inside their apps. Google is also thinking of adding the assistant into the search bar on the Android home screen, but "neither of these changes are finalized for introduction this year".
