Google Phone v17 introduces chat heads feature during calls

Google has added a notable addition to its line of "Go" edition apps - the lightweight apps designed primarily for emerging markets - with the launch of Gmail Go.

The overall experience of the Gmail Go app is quite similar to what you can get from the regular Gmail app. The size of the app, as reported by Android Police goes up to 24.80MB as opposed to 47.28MB for the regular app.

Google's latest update of its Android phone app comes with the addition of a rather popular interactive messaging feature: chat heads.

It baffles me that something as important as parental controls isn't built into Android and that Google's solution for the problem, Family Link, was only officially released previous year and is still limited to countries you can count on one hand: US, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and now Canada is joining the fold.

Gmail Go APK size is much smaller, around 9.51MB, compared to the original Gmail app which is as big as 20.66MB. In simpler terms, Gmail Go is almost half the size of the regular Gmail app.

Even before the last version of the Android OS, Oreo, is yet to be carried by many phones, there are already discussions over what Google will do with its next issue, the Android P. It is learnt that for internal communication purposes, Google identifies this as Android Pistachio Ice Cream, though the final name may not be the same.

Interestingly, Gmail Go also features Search box to search for the email within the Inbox. It basically displays the messages from friends and family first, while social and promotional emails are categorized neatly for when you have time. This application is designed mainly for the for Android Go phones. Enjoy a smart inbox that keeps your messages safe and you organized. 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. You can also set up multiple accounts on Gmail Go, it basically lets you set up both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses - Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail, or other IMAP/POP email.
