Sadly though, the app can be downloaded only on devices running Android 8.1 Oreo.

The Gmail Go app is the slimmed down version of the mainstream Gmail Android App.

The new app will include most of the features available on the original Gmail app. That doesn't mean someone with, say, an older Android device might not want a more frugal version of Gmail to maximize the use they get out of their phone without needing to upgrade. Despite being a lite version, there are still a lot of things that Gmail Go can do for you. Also, it appears that Gmail Go is not yet available for download in all countries.

The Gmail Go app comes with an advanced inbox that categorizes social and promotional emails under different tabs and shows the most important emails first.

Apparently, Google is looking to enhance the design of its upcoming operating system, which is also expected to be a complete overhaul of its software, in a bid to attract more iOS users and make them switch to Android, reports Bloomberg citing sources close to Google. Lastly, the app offers multiple account support, which will allow users to set up both, Gmail and non-Gmail addresses, such as Outlook, Yahoo Mail or any other IMAP/POP email. Of course, the prime goal of the Gmail Go app is to provide Gmail access amidst using less RAM and data. Android Go is an operating system designed for entry-level devices.

But he's said he not convinced the industry could bear the financial burden of maintaining the space station by the mid-2020s. The proposal doesn't say what companies would take over or what private enterprise might want to do with the station.

However, some early adopters have pointed out that scrolling on Gmail Go is a much more choppy experience than on the standard Gmail. The size of the app goes up to 24.80MB as opposed to 47.28MB for the regular app.

Gmail Go's file size is just at 9.51 MB and will take up around 25MB of space on your device, as opposed to the full app's 20.66MB download size and 47MB storage space needed.

And finally, Gmail Go has launcher app shortcuts for jumping straight to any of your account inboxes or composing a message.
