Gmail Go for low-end Android devices now available

Google has introduced a lighter version of the Gmail app - Gmail Go - which will work with devices, with basic specifications such as less than 1GB RAM or 512MB RAM.

As per Google, Gmail Go blocks spam before it hits the inbox keeping the account safe. In the case of Gmail Go, it means that you probably won't be able to install it on your regular Android device. Android Police reported that the size of app is 24.80MB compared to 47.28MB for the regular app.

While Apple doubles down on app refinements over flashy features for its iOS 12 update, expected in September, Google is reportedly "improving the look of the software" to pinch iPhone users. It uses less RAM and loads images on demand. Once installed, the Gmail Go app can only be deleted via the Google Play Store and not from the Settings menu like other apps.

When Ms Sibby, four months pregnant, tried to shield her husband and stop the attackers, they allegedly kicked her in the stomach. Jyotsana, 28, had filed a complaint alleging the gang led by Prajeesh barged into her house and thrashed her husband.

With Gmail Go, you can receive email notifications just like the original Gmail app.

Even before the last version of the Android OS, Oreo, is yet to be carried by many phones, there are already discussions over what Google will do with its next issue, the Android P. It is learnt that for internal communication purposes, Google identifies this as Android Pistachio Ice Cream, though the final name may not be the same. This is what makes the Gmail Go work smoothly on the Android Go phone size despite its smaller memory. It also prioritizes messages from friends and family first, while categorizing promotional and social emails in separate tabs, as Gmail does. Officially they - and Gmail Go - are targeted at emerging markets, where cellular connections can either be slower than the USA and other countries enjoy, or prohibitively expensive. Let's wait and watch for the Android Go to launch with more devices. Interestingly, with Gmail Go you can read and respond both online & offline. Gmail Go comes with 15GB of free storage, this takes away the headache of deleting emails to save space.
