The flexibility of the Gmail app on mobile is such that anyone can easily switch to another account—it is that easy within the app itself. Google is further seeing to it that everyone can switch accounts by simply swiping. Though, swipe to switch accounts on mobile has been available on iOS for a while, it is just being added to Android.

Version 2019.08.18 allows you to swipe to switch accounts on Android. You can swipe up or down on your profile picture at the top right of the interface. This simple step allows you to switch in-between accounts—and it speeds up access to your accounts. You can also still tap on your profile picture to select from a list of accounts that have been added—so, it is an additional option for everyone.

I have quite a number of emails for different purposes including business and personal—imagine how useful the new swipe feature is to me. So, if you are like me with multiple accounts, you now have access to each of them with so much ease. Per Android Police, it is still the same thing with Contact—the static interface elements remain where they are, while your image and email fade out.

The feature is already rolling out in the Play Store to all users. Not everyone has spotted the swipe feature yet, but that might change any moment from now. As with Google, some of these new features could take a couple of more days depending on the region sometimes and other factors.

However, if you still feel you can’t wait for the Play Store to make it available on your device, you can head to Android Police where a link to APK Mirror has been made available for all.

Just this week we told you of an important update soon to hit Gmail users with G Suite account. Soon, and pretty soon too, Gmail will be able to tell you when your grammar is not in order—the best part is that it will also automatically correct some of your errors or misspelling.

The grammar auto-correct feature will only be available to G Suite users, and will allow them to compose email with confidence. If for example you make a grammatically incorrect verb tense, a blue underline will appear below the phrase. Once you notice the blue underline, simply right-click the words to see a list of suggestions on how to fix them.

“As you type your message, Gmail will use artificial intelligence to make smarter spell-check suggestions while also detecting potential grammar issues. For some common spelling mistakes, we’ve also added as-you-type autocorrection for improved accuracy,” Google said in a blog post explaining the new feature.”

It is the perfect feature if you want to avoid making those embarrassing grammatical blunders that may cause you a big offer. It is particularly helpful when you are not a native English writer—it helps you to avoid those mistakes you ordinarily should not be making.
