Gmail Android App Adds Replying from Notifications

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Good news Android users: You’ll now be able to reply and search faster with Android’s Gmail app.

Google announced the move Monday, something available for Android 4.1 or higher devices.

Primarily the capability allows the user to perform and archive messages straight from the notifications section.

“You can combine this with existing notification features like the ability to customize which messages you receive notifications for and set up different sounds for individual labels. So if you filter and label all the messages from your mom, you could set a ringtone to let you know you received a new mail from her and then quickly reply (because we know what can happen when you ignore your mother!),” states Google via its Gmail blog.

The new app is available via Google Play. For more information, view Google’s blog post.
