Gmail app to sync with Outlook, Yahoo and other email rivals?

22/10/2014

The Android version of the app will be updated in the coming weeks with support for Outlook, Yahoo and other types of non-Gmail email accounts.

Watch the video posted by Android Police here, which reportedly shows the updates to the Gmail app:

According to a report in Android Police, the update lets users sync non-Gmail accounts with the app for the first time.

The publication linked to video it says is from the upcoming app. The video shows users accessing multiple types of email accounts, including Yahoo and Outlook, from within Gmail.

It appears that switching between Gmail and non-Gmail accounts will work much the same way as navigating between different Google accounts within the current app.

The video also shows Gmail's new Material Design-focused look, with new avatars, icons and menu styles. Material Deign is Google's new design language, revealed alongside Android Lollipop at Google I/O earlier this year.
