After just hitting the one billion installation mark, Gmail has celebrated by updating its email client to version 4.8. Although most of the changes are minimal, there are some fantastic new features that users will want to explore.

Print and save attachments in Gmail

Instead of having to manually download each attachment sent to your Gmail account, users can now print them directly through the email. Gmail also offers users the option to send attachments directly to their Drive account.

Truncated messages

Gmail used to cut off long messages if it was too long to view the app, but that has now changed. Long messages will now be shown in full within the new update.

UI tweaks

The navigation drawer has been revamped to show avatars for each Google account and the inclusion of the settings menu at the bottom of it. New colours have been used in-line with the Google Search app and there’s also new icons and messages shown when your inbox or sent folder is empty.
