Gmail and Google Calendar get a whole lot better on iOS
November 8, 2016
The new Gmail app for iOS
When you get the next Gmail iOS app update, you'll notice some exciting changes: The biggest overhaul of the app in nearly four years. It's the Gmail you know and love, with a fresh new look, sleeker transitions and some highly-requested features. It's a lot faster, too.
With the new app, getting things done on the go is a lot easier — whether you're trying to find a message your colleague sent you last month, or trying to get through your work inbox on a Monday morning.
Starting today, you'll be able to:
- Undo Send, just like you do on the desktop, to prevent embarrassing email mistakes
- Search faster with instant results and spelling suggestions (like when you type "flighht," but you really meant "flight")
- Swipe to archive or delete, to quickly clear items out of your inbox
Google Calendar: Updated for you
Based on your feedback (thank you!), the Calendar app on iOS has some shiny, new features:
- Month view and week in landscape view, so you have even more ways to see your schedule at a glance.
- Spotlight Search support, so you can search for events, Reminders and Goals in Apple's Spotlight Search and find what you're looking for faster.
- Alternate calendars. If you often look up dates in a non-Gregorian calendar — like Lunar, Islamic, or Hindu — you can now add that calendar to easily see those dates alongside your current calendar.
We'll continue to improve both Gmail and Calendar for iOS so you can be more productive on the go.
