While Apple doubles down on app refinements over flashy features for its iOS 12 update, expected in September, Google is reportedly "improving the look of the software" to pinch iPhone users. The size of the app is just 20.66 MB, but it may vary depending on the device it is being installed on. It uses less RAM and loads images on demand.

Despite the smaller size, the Go version of Gmail app works a lot like the original app, and also comes with some additional features and some design tweaks here and there.

Google has not made a formal announcement about Gmail Go's launch, but several sites have spotted its availability on the Google Play store this week. So, Gmail Go is almost half in size than the regular Gmail app that we have been using for the past so many years.

Earlier this week, Samsung began rolling out the latest major Android OS update - Android 8.0 "Oreo" - a full five months after Google released it. As of now, this toned down version of the original Gmail app is available only to the Web users, and not listed on Google Play store app mobile version. Its latest APK file is also available for download through APK Mirror.

The Gmail Go offers a smarter inbox which displays messages from friends and family first, while social and promotional emails are categorized neatly for when you have time. These Go applications have been designed for phones with low memory and storage space, similar to Gmail Go. This feature works as online and offline so you can directly read and respond to the emails right from the home screen of your entry level Android Go smartphone.

One more thing which you would like is, the Go edition apps from Google will also bring 15GB of free storage option on your device. Gmail Go also blocks spam even before it goes to your Inbox, but of course you won't be able to see those that were accidentally marked as spam. Nonetheless, it supports multiple accounts from Gmail and other email clients, including Outlook.com and Yahoo Mail.
