INTRO: Google launched Gmail return in July 2018 for low-end Android Go devices. Ever since then, the corporate has launched a good range of Go apps including the recently-launched Camera Go app. While a couple of Android Go apps are restricted to Android Go phones, it seems like Google has made Gmail Go App available for all Android phones.
According to 9to5Google, Google started showing its ‘similar app available’ prompt alongside the most Gmail app on the Play Store recently. For those unaware, this is often Google’s approach to let users know that a lighter version of the app is out there to download. You may choose from the 2 supported your usage.
Despite being an Android Go app, Gmail Go is claimed to possess noticeable lag and frame drops within the interface. A few people speculate that the app features a frame rate cap for low-end phones. So, if your phone is doing fine with the official Gmail app, you almost certainly shouldn’t switch to Gmail Go. After all, it just comes with none additional features just like the Meet tab, which you’ll disable on the Gmail app anyway. On the opposite hand, you would possibly notice an improvement in performance if use an entry-level Android phone.
Further, the supply of the app seems to be limited to pick regions. 9to5Google reports that the app is out there within the U.S. and Europe, it showed the standard ‘Your device isn’t compatible with this version’ error message once I checked on phones running Android Pie, Android 10, and Android 11 here in India. That said, you’ll sideload the app from APKMirror if you actually want to use it.
