Surely you will have noticed that while browsing Gmail everything has its gestures, it works very fast and without problems. But when changing accounts, when you have to click on the top and select from the drop-down menu of the accounts, you lose some speed when using the application. And it seems that now Gmail wants to change this.
Gmail and change account with a gesture
We had this option on iOS for a few months now, and we are surprised to see what it has taken to implement on Android, being Gmail and Android from the same company: Google.
But the option is already here, and it is very comfortable and easy to use. You just have to locate your profile picture, which is located in the upper right of the screen, as you may already know. There you make a gesture of sliding down or up and changing the account you are using, and therefore your in and out trays, which obviously will be those of the new account.
It works fast and it is appreciated to make a quick change. If you only have two accounts you can switch between them instantly . If you have more than one you may want to do it in the usual way to select the account that suits you at that time without having to go through all of them to get to the one you want.
This option although it may not seem like it, is not new, not even on Android, but it was not available for Gmail. You can use this option in apps such as Maps or Google Contacts. Apps in which it was not at all bad to have this option faster and more efficient, but perhaps Gmail is more practical to be able to navigate between all your accounts. It is also available in Google Drive, also very useful to navigate between your different accounts in the cloud.
All this is compiled in the latest version of Gmail, version 2019.08.18, which is coming to the Play Store, but you can also download it from APK Mirror if the update has not yet arrived and you want to try it now. You can also see the first strokes of the dark mode of Gmail.
