It looks like those Gmail engineers at Google are not asleep at the wheel, (not that we thought they were). A new update will be pushed out to Gmail on Android sometime soon, and it adds several awesome new features. First, Google improved the search functionality within Gmail on Android. It also offers newly improved Drive integration and a better auto-complete. The next biggest add-on is the new “Conversation view” which will be added to your Yahoo, Outlook, and other IMAP/POP accounts.
The final cherry on top is that Google added a unified inbox. This is basically an “All inboxes” option that brings all of your email accounts into a single view. This will let you avoid needing to move between multiple accounts all of the time. Also, just in case you don't like it, you can skip the “All inboxes” option. You will find it in your slideout navigation menu, in case you want to view all of your email merged into one account. From the handiness of these new add-ons, it looks like the folks at Google have been taking some creativity pills!
There's no word on when this will start pushing out, but we will keep you apprised.
