Search filters and a better UI come to Gmail for Android


Gmail is one of the most important mobile applications developed by Google, and in the course of these days it is receiving a lot of attention also because of the support for Material You.

Gmail’s search filters land on mobile

The company unveils that now it is possible to find a specific email using the numerous search filters previously exclusive to the web version of Gmail only. “Search filters can be used independently or after the search, helping you to choose filter options from drop-down lists – reads the release note. For example, you can type a query and further narrow the results by selecting search filters such as: colleague name or a specific time range. When searching for emails by sender, users can choose from a list of suggested senders or search for emails from multiple senders. “

The feature is currently in rollout and will be fully available by the end of October. In the meantime, you can keep the mobile application updated by downloading the latest version through the Play Store badge below.

Here is the new bottom navigation bar

Google, as we know, is pushing the accelerator pedal to update proprietary applications according to the Material You guidelines. In fact, after updating Google Drive, Duo, Photos, Calendar, Keep and many others, today we find out that the development team of the mobile application has brought a small (but very visible) change to some elements of the UI.

In fact, as you can see from the images above, the designers have considerably reduced the height of the lower navigation bar, moving the button slightly down to compose a new email. The result is purely “graphic”, in the sense that this change does not offer the possibility of reading more emails on the screen.
