Gmail for Android now supports Exchange on all devices

gmail for android

No longer limited to Nexus devices, you can now use Gmail to handle all your work and personal email.

Google has thrown open the door for Microsoft Exchange accounts in Gmail. Previous support was limited to Nexus devices, but an update now lets anybody add their corporate email address to the Android Gmail app.

This move now allows Google to position Gmail as the all-in-one solution for your email needs. Most recently Google said you could ”Gmailify” your or Yahoo address, which meant advanced features like spam blocking and Google Now would talk to your non-Google email.

The version 6.4 update is rolling out in the Play Store, or you can get it now from APK Mirror.

The impact on you: If you’re a fan of Gmail but had to turn to another email app for your company mail, this gives you the ability to keep everything inside of one application. However, Gmail doesn’t connect as deeply to Office 365, so if you rely on Microsoft’s cloud for sharing documents, opening attachments, or integrating with other Microsoft services you may still wish to use the official Outlook app.
