Gmail for Android update finally brings ability to save attachments to Google Drive

gmail for android update

The ability to save Gmail attachments to Google Drive straight from the email has been a very pleasant experience on desktop, but those of us who do check a lot of email on mobile have been missing out on that functionality. Thankfully there’s no more waiting for it, as the latest Gmail for Android update adds a quick and easy “Save to Drive” button for any attachments you receive.

Also new in this update is an explanation for any email that is automatically marked as spam, better support for right-to-left languages (such as Arabic), and easier access to the slide-out navigation bar while reading email messages. Of course, Google always stresses that not everyone will see the update at the same time, but it shouldn’t take more than a few days to reach your handset or tablet if it isn’t already available.

    FINALLY is the right word choice here. Sometimes I’m really left scratching my head over the absence/removal of certain features in Google’s apps, as well as Android.
