Just yesterday we said that the Google application, Gmail Go, would be available for installation on all Android smartphones. However, it looks like it didn’t take long for Google to withdraw that possibility from the Google Play Store.
In fact, at the time of writing that article it was assumed that the update could arrive in a phased manner for many users, however, today it is confirmed that Google has decided to remove the possibility of installing the application on any Android smartphone.
Google no longer allows you to install Gmail Go on your Android smartphone
That is, everything continues as it was. The Gmail Go application will only work for smartphones with Android Go. Still, many users were able to download the application to their smartphone. We’ll see how far an APK solves the problem.
Gmail application differences are minimal
Unlike other “Go” Apps, the differences in aesthetics and functionality in the Go version are minimal. You may not have, for example, smart composer, however, everything else is the same. Even on your User Interface.
Advantages of Go applications
- They are much lighter than “normal” Apps
- Usually spend less internet
- Focus on basic features
One of the best differences we can show is the size of the applications. As we mentioned, even though it is very similar in terms of design and features, Gmail Go is less than 10MB, while the Gmail application occupies a monstrous 250MB.
Hopefully Google will remember to bring Gmail Go back to all Android smartphones. Especially because it is a viable option that many users prefer.
