Google is starting to roll out a major upgrade to the Gmail app for iOS. The company is making it much easier to use multiple accounts with Gmail for iOS now, so you won’t have to keep switching between different accounts to view all your inboxes.
The feature has been available in the past on Android, and it’s essentially a central inbox that has emails from all your different accounts, even IMAP accounts. This is kind of a basic feature that’s available widely in other apps, most notably on Outlook for iOS where it combines the inboxes of all your accounts into a single All Accounts Inbox.
“You can view email from multiple accounts, be it your work or personal, G Suite or non-G Suite (even third-party IMAP accounts), in the Gmail iOS app. But you’ve traditionally needed to toggle between different inboxes to do so. To save you time, we’re now making it possible to view emails from multiple accounts in a single inbox on an iOS device—the same way you can with the Gmail Android app,” Google said in a blog post, announcing the new update.
The feature started rolling out yesterday, and it will be rolling out over the next 15 days.
