  • New Update

    Why change something when it was working fine? The email automatically “opens” when the cursor moves to the next one on the list...shows as “read” which is not helpful. In the future, please leave things working well alone. And I am still waiting for an explanation for this: Why is the envelope at the upper right open when the email is unread and closed when the email has been read? Shouldn't it be the opposite, closed until read and open when read? Am I misunderstanding the obvious?
  • It’s great and gets better EVERYDAY!

    By Ericzthumbs
    4 1/2 years ago I got the task of converting 560 people’s email boxes from Outlook with Exchane to Google mail. I asked for the change and I was given three weeks notice once the decision was made. The conversion was smooth and we have been using Google mail ever since. I have been using email applications since 1989. I do not know exactly when email was invented but that is nearly the beginning of it’s common usage. I’ve managed dozens of email servers and many thousands of email accounts. I have installed, managed, and used more than a dozen different email platforms. Google mail works great! I can truthfully say that four a half years ago Google Mail did not have all the features that Outlook Mail did. However, I can also truthfully and with the greatest confidence tell you that I have seen Google mail mature every month since. There is constant work going on as Google listens to their customers and makes Google Mail and Google Calendar and all of their other core apps better and better day by day. Outlook has now lost it’s 25+ year lead on Google Mail. Google’s office products are also rapidly improving and very usable for any organization. Look out Microsoft Office! We now have not only all of our employees, but all of our students using Google Mail on a daily basis. Our school district now has an active 4300 Google Mail accounts. Most of those are used on the rapidly improving Chromebooks running ChromeOS. Look out Microsoft Windows! Keep up keep up the good work Google friends!
  • File sharing needs some major work

    By RDHath
    The one major flaw to the Gmail app is the file sharing capabilities when responding/forwarding mail. The only options available are pictures, recent attachments and Google drive docs. Why can't we have access to Dropbox & other cloud services like just about every other email app today?! This is the one main issue with Gmaik. Please fix
  • Fantastic!

    By AliGuzeloglu
    This app is fantastic because it doesn’t have any bugs,also it is very modern
  • Thanks Google!

    By KYjaybird
    Thanks for all your hard work, and thanks for the app! The only reason why you don’t get the fifth star is because you don’t have group email capabilities on the app like you do on the PC.
  • Good but just a little more to be great

    By ThingOne501
    I love Gmail, but it just needs a few more features to be perfect. For example, I would love an option to “Select All” in the current folder or search results feed. I would also like to see them bring the “Show Unread” feature to the mobile app. I am aware that you can type in the search bar “is:unread” and even add “in:inbox” and get the same result, but I feel like that is not a difficult folder to add. Come on Google, make this app perfect.

  • Critical functionality lost

    By Alpesh P
    Update February 2018 Phone number & address hyperlinks function again! Update July 2017 Recent updates lost short-lived ability to dial phone numbers directly from email message. Back to tedious copy-paste-call. The reply suggestions are interesting though. Saves about 10 seconds but I'm not sure how I feel knowing that google is parsing and understanding all of my email content. Update. All of a sudden, I can now edit text in forwarded messages...I had not updated the app, this functionality just appeared on its own...just like in google's map app the nearby traffic widget just stopped working on its own one day. Curious. Signatures still are not tying into my web gmail settings and are completely unusable for aliases and HTML formatted signatures...which I need for my business use. At least give this functionality to your paying customers! Also realizing how much I miss the reply & forward buttons at the top of the screen in gmail 4.x. Many improvements in gmail 5.x but they do not make up for lost features. Original review: BEWARE. gmail 5.x is simply rebranded inbox and lacks the same critical features, namely: -horrendous signature handling. No HTML signatures. No alias specific signatures. (fixed)-message forwarding limitations. Cannot edit forwarded message. There's a longer list of reasons I hadn't switched from gmail 4.x to inbox but those are more preferences as opposed to critical requirements to do my work. The 5.x search improvement is nice but irrelevant since I can no longer use the gmail app for work so I'm now searching for a new mail app for the first time since a native gmail app was introduced. Disappointed.

  • Google still thinks people don't need to print

    By Ferg121
    With the latest update Google still thinks people don't need to print emails. With the latest update, now Google really wants you to load Chrome. It keeps asking what browser you want to run. If you try to deselect “ask me each time” it will ignore your selection. It appears that Google is making this worse each time it updates it.
