What's Android without gmail, right? And in Android 2.2, the gmail app has gotten even better, fixing some of our biggest complaints and bringing better account switching, e-mail notification and attachment handling. Check it out.

Since I run three Gmail accounts on the N1, this is really nice for switching accounts.

Phil: Can you force the app to open at the accounts page?

I'm curious about that too

what widget is that for the appts on the home screen????


ZacSixChip says:

Yes, please tell us the name of that widget!

+1 too! :D

DaSpitter says:

can you tell me what the vibrate option is....It's killing me that on my droid I have to have it vibrate all the time if I want it to actually vibrate on vibrate mode...Did they make it so that it will only vibrate now on vibrate mode and not vibrate when the sound is on? For all apps? For just this one? Or do I still need to wait!?!?

Was really hoping they improved the text editor, i'm a big fan of replying inline.

adeakinyooye says:

hey you forgot to mention you can now copy text by going menu>more>select text

gdigenis says:

i tried out froyo last weekend and i did like the email client changes. i think they took a step backwards in the calendar app by forcing us to press menu, more, new event (added one extra step to add a new event).

bkrodgers says:

Does the account picker also let you pick from multiple "Send From" addresses you may have added on a single GMail account? Or can you still only send from the default "Send From" on a given account?

Groucho says:

Still looks like K-9 is way a head of the native or sense apps with Integrated Mail Box, selective push and polling, attachment management and much faster text input.

is the youtube link not workin for anybody else?

morganmms says:

My biggest annoyance is with the Notifications. I get notified that I have new email; and when I select it from the "Notifications" it opens the message. I would much prefer it to take me to my inbox so I can select multiple messages to delete.

So, what I started doing was setting up Gmail in the Mail app and connect to it using Exchange.

Payne78 says:

Great! Now are they going to fix the other horrible email program. My hotmail notifies me of the same damn email 30 times a day (slight exaggeration), no matter how many times I press the delete button. Makes me want to kick a puppy.

I hope that gets fixed ln the OTA release, my yahoo and my two ymail accounts do the same thing. This is the few times I miss my Blackberry.

Porwah says:

Is it true you can copy text (adeakinyooye's message)?

How about contact groups? Can I send an email to one of the contact groups I have GMail?

Awake says:

I hope everyone got the message, Google says the leaked version is not the final version.

stalker says:

Yes.. I've installed froyo on my N1. And gmail and gtalk client's are new in it. Gmail client is quite good now. :D :D

Mark_Venture says:

What about reply and forward... are they on the menus yet? or do you still have to scroll to the very bottom of the email conversation (and its history) to see those options?

BTSee says:

I love all the front page stories...especially those with videos to watch...but I find the background music distracting and annoying. It must go!

Wynder says:

Just as an FYI... the new version of Gmail is available as an update through the Market for 2.1 at the very least... I've had it for several days now.

kenjancef says:


I have a Hero (well, till Friday anyway...), and I looked in the market and didn't find any GMail update. Where or how should I look?


kreach says:

larger FONT in gmail - it's about time. ^_^

azmansell#AC says:

did anyone find out what the widget is ?

kreach says:

LOVE the option for larger text (yes, I am old). Still need the option to add an email to the calendar (create event) or add to tasks...Am I missing something, this seems like it should be an integral part of gmail - it is on my pc just not on my phone.
