Gmail for iOS allows to search inbox and write new emails quickly
The update of Gmail for iOS was done with support in terms of a dedicated widget. The Gmail widget allows you to easily search your inbox and make it easy to compose a new email. It was made available on devices that run on iOS 14 or higher. In addition, Google Drive and Google fit apps on iOS have also been updated with widgets. To provide you with a better experience on iOS and its other latest versions, Google claims to bring widgets from Chrome and Google Calendar as well. Even Chrome on the iPad has undergone updates with support for multiple windows.
Viewing the inbox is not facilitated by the Gmail widget on iOS as is the case on Android. A standard 4×2 widget is provided to you, allowing you to search your inbox. It also allows you to generate a new email by tapping the “Compose” shortcut. It even provides a shortcut from where you can view unread emails. It makes it easy to view emails in your inbox by providing a counter. With it, you wouldn’t have to use the badge on the Gmail app icon.
