Gmail update brings better Drive sharing

Google is now beginning to push out an update to its Gmail app for Android which brings better sharing of content that's stored on Google Drive. You can now simply insert files, photos, and documents directly from Drive into your Gmail body and manage permissions on the go as to privacy and sharing.

"Simply insert Google Drive files directly into your Gmail messages on your Android phone or tablet," Google wrote on a Google+ post about the new update. "If the file isn't shared with the person you're sending it to, you'll get the option to change your sharing settings before you send it"

Additionally, there is now better autocomplete suggestions when you start typing messages. These auto-complete of contacts are done faster and will give you suggestions for contacts when you begin typing in the To, Cc, or Bcc fields.

The update will be rolling out in stages over the next few days so don't fret if you don't see an updatee being pushed out.
