Gmail update brings Material Design, POP/IMAP support

After it was leaked previously, Google is now starting to push out a new app update for the Gmail client on Android devices bringing a fresh new look with Material Design. In addition to a visual update, the new Gmail app can also be home to all your other non-Google email service providers, meaning that you won't need a separate email client for your POP or IMAP accounts. This means that along with viewing all your Gmail accounts, the app will also allow you to check your Outlook, Yahoo, or other accounts as well.

If you haven't yet seen the update hit your device, fret not as Google says it may take a few days for the roll out to be completed.

What do you think of the integrated inbox design of the new Gmail app? Are you ready to dump your native Email app on your phone and start using the Gmail app to check Google's email service and all your other non-Google email accounts?
