Remember Gmail Go, the scaled-down version of the original Gmail that launched in February 2018? It was mainly launched for phones with low-end processors or areas with poor internet availability. It is now available for download on all Android phones.
Gmail Go is like the Lite version of the original Gmail, similar to the Facebook Light, Twitter Lite or YouTube, Google’s Files and Chrome Go. “The Gmail you love, now lighter and just as fast. Enjoy a smart inbox that keeps your messages safe and organized. Receive notifications when emails arrive, then read and reply both online and offline. Plus, find quickly messages with powerful search and more, “says the description of Gmail Go on the Play Store.
Some of the features in Gmail Go that can come in handy for you are a smarter inbox that focuses on messages from friends and family first. Social and promotional emails are sorted neatly for when you have time. Gmail Go blocks spam before it reaches your inbox so you have a clutter-free inbox. Offers 15GB of free storage. It will also allow you to have support for multiple accounts. Like all other Lite versions of the apps, Gmail Go will also take up less space on your phone and consume less data.
Google hasn’t made any formal announcements about it. According to a report from TechCrunch, this is because the app will be available for download only from the Play Store and for updating the app on devices that already have it pre-installed. Only the Android O Go edition has the Gmail Go apps for now, so this means that only these users can use the Gmail Go app. Nothing is clear until Google formally makes any announcements about it.
Gmail Go launched in February 2018. It is basically a stripped down version of the original Gmail, initially meant for basic phones with low-end processors.
