Just after updating the iOS app, Google has announced that it has released an update to the Android Gmail app. The update greatly improves the user interface on 7-inch tablets, such as the Nexus 7. The update improves the layout of messages in the multi-column display making text less likely to get cut off and navigation easier. Google also added a new Labels API to let third-party apps access specific labels on Android 2.2 devices and higher.
The updated Gmail app is available on Google Play now.
