Gmail For iOS Now Lets You Open Links In YouTube, Google Maps And Chrome
Apparently, that Google is reportedly set to launch premium channels on YouTube is not the only bit of Google-YouTube news we have for you today. Admittedly of less significance but still worthy of note is a newly issued update to the official Gmail iOS app, which adds, among others, improved YouTube integration. Specifically, the new Gmail app update lets you open YouTube links directly in the YouTube app rather than in the in-app browser. In addition, the update allows Google Maps links and general URLs to be opened directly in the Google Maps and Chrome apps for iOS, respectively. Of course, the YouTube, Google Maps and Chrome apps should already be installed on your device for their interoperability with the Gmail app to work. But if you want to continue using the in-app browser for viewing links in Gmail, you still can. Just go to the app's settings section, tap Google Apps, and toggle the app's integration with the YouTube, Google Maps and Chrome apps independently. The new Gmail app update also adds support for signing out of a single account instead of having to sign out of all accounts at the same time. Cue collective sigh of relief from many users of the app. Finally, right? In the app's accounts view, tap "Sign out" at the bottom and select the first option to sign out of the currently selected account only or the second one to sign out of all accounts. Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Gmail for iOS is available now in the App Store for free. Just over a month ago, the app received an update that added support for switching between messages with just a swipe and for taking action on multiple messages at once. And now, here comes another update with another pair of welcome improvements. Gmail for iOS just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it? [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
