Google has made it much easier to see see contact information, recent conversations, and more in the latest update to Gmail for Android.

The latest update to the Gmail app for Android, which is rolling out now, makes viewing contact information, finding recent conversations, and more much easier. A single tap on the users avatar will now bring up all of this information, where as you previously had to search in various places for it all.

The full changelog for this update includes:

  • Tapping on people's avatars now lets you see recent conversations, contact info, and more.
  • Support for non-Gmail addresses (IMAP) is now more reliable and adding additional accounts is a smoother experience.

It may take a day or two before the update shows up for you. You can download the Gmail app for Android for free from Google Play.
