Both the tech giants have released updates just in time. Google comes with a feature called #Gmailify while Microsoft updated their back-end and introduced a #NewOutlook experience.
Google’s mail app on mobile phones has seen a few improvements last year including features where user can add multiple mail accounts including of Outlook, yahoo to their Gmail app but the services which were added to the app were kept separate.This has changed now with the introduction of Gmailify. It is the existing unique feature of Gmail that categorizes mails in inbox as primary, social, updates, forum and promotions that applies to all the user added mail accounts such as yahoo, Outlook.
Users won’t be able to identify the difference until a new mail account is added to the app. Once the mail accounts are added, you will be able to see a new label “all inboxes” where inboxes of all accounts are linked together and the gmailify is applied, which means your mails of all accounts are now categorized within the app itself.
Google also provides same spam protection, inbox organizing, and Google now cards for all mail servers added to its linked inbox.
Now don’t worry if you use several mail accounts, Gmail app on your mobile does the magic once your accounts are synced.
