Google Quietly Updates Gmail for Android to Suite your Holiday Travels

It’s always kind of a drag when your mobile email client doesn’t do all the things that your desktop client can. Google seems to be catching on to this, since the company rolled out a new update to Gmail for Android today with a few new features that have been previously reserved for its web users.

Gmail 4.7 now lets you set up an away message with the Vacation Responder. Just as in the web client, you can set a start and end date for when the service should send out an automatic message that you’re out enjoying yourself. When you’re done having fun, you can easily toggle the messages on and off from within the app.

Google also added the ability to send attachments from the mobile client, such as documents, PDFs, and .zip files.

For those of you with Android 4.4. KitKat, the new Gmail includes native support for cloud printing. Devices with low memory will also notice a performance improvement within the app, which Google notes is a change made on behalf of Project Svelte.

The Gmail update should be rolling out to an Android device near you, or you can try to grab it from the Google Play store.

If resurrected, he is likely to go back to writing on technology.
