Google has unveiled a slew of updates to its Gmail app for Android that are designed to make it easier for users to manage multiple email accounts on the go.

Central to the new features is the All Inboxes view, which allows Gmail users to view mail from multiple email accounts -- including those with Yahoo and Outlook -- on a single page. The feature is a major boost of convenience, as it means users can read and reply to messages without switching back and forth between accounts.

Google also made threaded conversations available for Yahoo, Outlook and other IMAP/POP accounts. The feature, which was already a fan-favorite of Gmail users, allows messages to within an email thread to appear stacked as one conversation.

Today's update also addresses the pain point of faulty auto correct when typing the name of an email recipient. Google says the new auto complete search feature was made better and smarter so "you can find what you need even faster."

Capping today's update are more responsive animations, larger attachment previews, and the ability to save files to Google Drive with a single tap. No word from Google just yet on when the features will make the leap the to iOS.
