Up until now, Google has launched Go versions of popular apps such as Gboard, Google Assistant and YouTube.

For those of you complaining of a resource hungry Gmail app, which slows your smartphone experience, Google has come out with a revised app. Instead, its listing in the Google Play store is just for Android Go users, and for pushing updates to Android Go users who bought a device with the app pre-installed. 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.

The Go version of Gmail app works a lot like the original Gmail app, and also comes with some additional features and some cosmetic or design changes here and there. The size of the app goes up to 24.80MB as opposed to 47.28MB for the regular app. Despite its lightweight build, the Gmail Go app provides you with an advanced inbox that categorises social and promotional emails under different tabs to help you focus on important messages first.

Google has introduced Gmail Go, the newest addition to its line of "Go" apps that are slimmed down versions of their original counterparts, as spotted by TechCrunch. This feature works as online and offline so you can directly read and respond to the emails right from the home screen of your entry level Android Go smartphone.

The latest Android update version 8.1.0 is still being rolled out to users' devices, so there's a chance that there are still some running the older version of Android Oreo.

However, other nonessential features may be missing (images won't load automatically, for example) so that it can use less ROM and RAM.

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.

Overall, the Gmail Go interface looks nearly exactly like the main app - there's the multi-select option, and then there's also swipe gestures available.
