Check Out Gmail 5.0 For Android And Google's Plan To Handle All Your Email Accounts In One App

Google's been updating apps left and right recently to fall in line with its new material design philosophy, and the results have been impressive. There are a few apps it appears Google's saving for the final Lollipop release though - Gmail 5.0 among them.

While we won't be distributing the updated Gmail app until the official update is released, we will be sharing a goody from the new onboarding process, which shows some of the new awesomeness coming to the app in its overhaul.

[Update: 1500 More] Boxer Email Comes To Android For $9.99, But We've Got 500 Promo Codes

Google does a lot of things right, and Gmail is generally one of them. Sometimes, however, you just need a little more from your email experience, and Boxer wants to provide that. It takes the basic Gmail app's functionality – like swipe to delete/archive – and builds on that, bringing even more usefulness to this kind of gesture.

Android Police would like to remind you that email cannot speak. In the event that it does speak, Android Police urges you to disregard its advice.

[Bug Watch] Contacts Containing Emoji Are Failing To Sync With Gmail

Emoji are a staple in conversations for many, many people. They offer a colorful, language-agnostic way to convey thoughts and intent that can’t always come across in a wall of text. Instant messaging is the most common home to these little pictograms, but it's not unheard of for them to appear elsewhere, particularly within contact names. Unfortunately, when Emoji are used to decorate contacts in Gmail, it can interfere with the syncing service and prevent those contacts from crossing between devices.

Gmail Hangouts Updated With Tab That Puts Online Contacts At The Top, Lets Users Pin Favorites

Google is continuing to shine a brighter light on Hangouts users who are currently online. A few months ago the company brought back the green dot that used to mark online contacts in the days of Google Talk (which was replaced with a subtle green line in Hangouts). Going forward, the messenger in the web version of Gmail will contain a new tab that puts online contacts at the top. It's still possible to message friends who are offline, they're just tucked at the bottom where they're out of the way.

[Update: Google Blocks Email With Sneaky Characters] Gmail Users Can Now Communicate With Email Addresses Containing Accented Or Non-Latin Characters

Update: Opening up email to a greater number of characters is a good thing for users, but it's also exciting for spammers. Certain characters - such as ဝ, ૦, ο, and the letter o - look very similar. Too similar, really. So Gmail will now block email addresses attempting to take advantage of this, and it will use the Unicode Consortium's "highly-restricted" specification to do so. Wဝ૦ο!

It may seem to many of us that there are an endless number of email addresses available out there, but if your name contains characters that don't fit somewhere between A-Z, that illusion is shattered pretty quickly.

Google Steps Up Gmail And Calendar Integration In Google Now With Inferred Events

In one of our early Google Now rumors, we described the possibility of "inferred events," or events that Google would grab from your Gmail (or other Google services) and present as a card in Google Now, with the option to add an entry to your calendar.

Today, it looks like the service is being switched on for some users, with Gmail being the first target (as we speculated previously).

Rumor: Alleged Gmail Interface Shown Off In Photos By Source Of Initial Google+ Interface Leak

Yoel Kaseb, who last month posted a series of screenshots purporting to show a revamped Google+ interface (which ended up being proven mostly accurate in a recent update), is back again, this time posting photos of what is allegedly a new Gmail interface.

Before we discuss, let's look at the photos. For the sake of clarity, I've used the photos to quickly create a clearer, full-res mockup of the interface shown.
