    Ok now the new gmail has the options to include email account from different servers (yahoo,..). Now why do we need an 'e-mail' app? Can't they make it uninstallable? Or won't we find this app in android L?

    Does it bother you that much? Lmao. From the Nexus 6 videos I have seen, it's also going to get a material design make over.

    Precisely... I hope they remove the e-mail app in android L...
    Can't wait for the update... I wish they sort the battery drain issue quickly and completely... I don't want a buggy OS.. Right now I have too much expectations on it...

    Yes, so it's likely to stay. Just like how we have hangouts or the new stock messenger app. Options everywhere!

    The new gmail app doesn't support Exchange on Outlook at least. Tried my 'live . com' address and it set it to IMAP without being any option to go Exchange. It's not Push supported, kind sucks. I will definitely want the default email app to continue.

    Note that if you want to enable Exchange support you'll need to install both of the APKs listed below.

    Its no confusion..Though the notifications (on my moto x) doesn't show clearly which account is a particular mail from.. But in the app it's very clear and easy to switch between accounts...

    yes i know how to do it. my point is that it is easy to send from the wrong account. especially since the colors are the same. you have to really look close to not **** up.

    Yes I too felt having the option to customize colors would be good.. Hope they bring it in further updates

    I'm kinda glad it's there, I would never have thought to put the information from my exchange server at work into the gmail app. You do however make a good point, now that I got the memo it should be uninstallable.

    In previous versions of Android we had one app for gmail and a totally different app for other types of email like the exchange server that many businesses use. Now it's all in one app.

    the colors wouldn't even need to be customized. just make them different for each email address automatically. just as they do with each different Contact Icons listed on each Gmail.

    Yea... Either make the colors customizable or the icon or both... That would be cool.. That was the first thing I felt after the update.

    What I really like about the new Gmail is the ability to open an email from a different account (outlook, yahoo, etc) and actually go directly to the message like Gmail. Yahoo and Outlook would go to the list or to the previous email you were viewing.

    They copied that feature from Windows Phone's native Email app. Things are really getting interesting for both mobile platforms.

    The email app comes with Android and can be modified by OEM's. That's the "open source" app. Gmail is Google's imaging of it.

    Thanks

    the Gmail with Exchange Support isn't on Play Store? I feel a bit skeptical loading apks for email.

    The ability to eliminate conversation view would be nice. People have only been requesting this for roughly five years though. The technology required for such a task must be overwhelming for google.
