Gmail App Update Brings Performance Improvements To Honeycomb, Gingerbread, And Froyo Users

The Gmail app received a performance update today bringing Ice Cream Sandwich functionality to Honeycomb users and new label API’s to Froyo and Gingerbread. Honeycomb users will benefit from the new Ice Cream Sandwich features, including:

  • Swipe to move between newer and older conversations
  • Tap your account to access Recent labels
  • Set custom notifications for individual labels
  • Sync last 30 days of messages so you can read and search messages faster both online and offline.

It’s too bad the majority of users are still stuck on Gingerbread and Froyo, but at least they should see some performance improvements (although user reports are saying they don’t see a difference). To update to the latest version on your Android device, simply follow the Google Play link below.
