Just a day after it updated Gmail for iOS devices, Google has released an update for Android devices bringing much of the same features and more. If you own a device running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above, you can head over to the Play Store to download the latest version of Google s email client.

One of the major features on the new version is the tabbed interface Google introduced on Gmail a week back. The tabbed interface on Gmail automatically sorts emails into pre-determined categories, thus helping de-clutter your inbox. Just like on the iOS version, to take advantage of this new interface, you must have the new inbox enabled on your Gmail account.
In addition to the above, Google has also improved the readability of the emails on the app and has also introduced a slide-out drawer much like how you see on the iOS version as well as the ability to swipe-down to refresh.
