Gmail Go is now available on the Play Store for all Android users


About three years ago, Google introduced the first “Go” versions of some of its most popular apps, optimized for Android Go devices with less RAM and storage. As seen by people 9to5Google, Google’s Gmail Go app is now available on the Play Store for all Android users.

According to the application description on the Play Store, the Gmail Go app is “light and fast” as a regular Gmail app. While the app’s screenshots have not yet been added to the Play Store listing, the app has the same UI as the regular app. You get support for multiple accounts, spam protection, and the same smart inbox.

However, there are some major differences as well. The app icon has a red “Go” badge at the bottom, while Google Meat has not yet been integrated into the app. Whether or not the app will get a bottom bar with Meat Integration in the future remains to be seen. Since the app is specifically designed for low-end devices, there is no layering in the UI. You get a white outline for the search field and the long composition button. Noted by 9to5GoogleThe app’s frame rate is also capped, resulting in noticeable lag when scrolling.

Gmail Go is now available to download for all Android phones, with Assistant Go and YouTube Go being the only “Go” apps that are still exclusive to Android Go phones.
