Google has updated the Gmail app for iOS with a slew of new features including lock screen replies, share sheet functions and more.
One of the notable features introduced to Gmail for iOS is the ability to reply to or archive emails from within the notification menu rather than having to open Gmail first.
“These quick actions help you stay on top of your messages without having to open the app,” Google noted in a post about the update.
The updated version 4.0 of Gmail for iOS will now appear in the iOS system share sheet, which means users can easily email photos and documents while inside other apps by tapping the share icon. They will need to just select Gmail in the share menu to start attaching files directly from iPhoto, Chrome, and other apps.
Finally, Google has also added a new “attachment viewer” that lets users open file attachments in Gmail and then send them to any other app on their device.
“Using your attachments on mobile can be a pain,” Google wrote.
“With the new attachment viewer you can now open files of any kind directly into the app of your choosing.”
Version 4.0 of the Gmail app is currently available to download from the iTunes App Store. The update requires iOS 7.1 or later to run, and it’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models.
