Google finally unveils Gmail Go for low-RAM devices

Among many high-profile components and features is the device's operating system, namely the latest version of Android, the 8.0 release codenamed Oreo.

Always according to the same site that does not give more information about the look of this new interface, the goal of Android P is to facilitate the switch from an iPhone to an Android smartphone.

We've already seen a couple of Chinese Android phones copy the iPhone X notch, but a report today suggests that Google is planning to do the same thing. Google has launched a lighter version of the Gmail application called the Gmail Go. It will give you all the basic and mostly used features in your not so powerful hardware phone. Gmail Go also allows to set up multiple accounts, so that you set up both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses - Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail, or other IMAP/POP email.

One more thing which you would like is, the Go edition apps from Google will also bring 15GB of free storage option on your device. All the apps of Google will store your data on cloud with full security.

Mobile operating systems are always being refined, and Android Oreo is certainly no exception.

The app is available on Google Play, but can be downloaded in a limited set of countries and only by devices running Android 8.1 Oreo. This makes Gmail Go nearly half in size than the regular Gmail app which is in use for past many years.

Users having low end phones are mostly going to benefit from these Go apps. The first phone to take the notch approach was the Essential Phone, created by Android co-founder Andy Rubin, though in that case there was just a small notch for the camera.
