Keeping in mind those users having low-end devices Google is continuously introducing lite versions of some popular apps. Like other lite versions Gmail go also facilitates some useful features in mini size.
Google’s lite versions always have some unique options which you might miss while using the main app. It’s maybe design, interface or size that varies in lite versions and above all the ability to save more data and storage which makes them first choice of all users. So what are those elements which make Gmail go different from the main Gmail app, let’s find out in this post!
Comparing Gmail and Gmail Go on the Basis of Common Features
While comparing the user interface of Gmail app and Gmail go, users can’t find any major difference between both the apps. The interface is almost similar apart from only one difference which users can see after they open navigation drawer. While using main Gmail app users can see cover and profile photo at the top which is missing in Gmail go. In Gmail go app-only email address and option to change email accounts is available on navigation drawer which is only one different we managed to find.
Even after having all the features of the main Gmail app, the size of Gmail go is only 10 MB. On the other hand, if you download the Gmail app it will take up to 25 MB of space. Offering all the core and needed features of an email app in its lite version is appreciable on Google’s part. This makes better for users having low-end devices to download and use Gmail Go app instead of the main Gmail app.
Even though Gmail Go is compatible to install on all high or low-end devices, but it is limited to users having android go installed in their respective devices. Unlike other go apps, Google has restricted the use of this app for normal android devices. Still, if you want to give Gmail Go a try then just download the apk file of Gmail Go from any authentic third party websites and then install it in your normal android device.
When it comes to Gmail account settings options then you might be surprised to know that there is no such option for account settings available in Gmail go which allows users to change passwords, profile settings or any other account settings. If you want to make some changes to Gmail, then you have to resort to the main Gmail app for this.
Well, users can also Synchronize mail while using Gmail go app but to a limited extent as the app is dedicated to those users having limited data. Google has reduced the sync setting to 7 days which can be extended later as per the choice of user. With the help of manual settings available inside the app, users can increase or decrease the period accordingly.
After looking towards the comparison between these two apps Gmail and Gmail Go, we can say that apart from some minor differences Android Go users will not experience any major change. Like other lite versions designed by Google, Gmail Go is another app which proves to be pretty useful for users having limited data and low storage devices.
