A nice new update is headed for the Gmail for Android app today. The biggest change will be for those who are lucky enough to be on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher. Expandable notifications coming from the app will now include the ability to reply to an email, delete an email, or archive an email straight from the notification without having to enter the app.

If you’re on Ice Cream Sandwich or higher, you’ll get a faster search experience, and some typical bug fixes and performance improvements. Finally, those on Android 2.2 and higher can all expect enhanced performance and a new Labels API for third-party developers. There’s not much more to it than that, so you’ll probably want to go ahead and grab the upgrade as soon as possible. You can do just that in the Google Play Store.
