Google is updating its Gmail app for Android devices, bringing in support for Microsoft Exchange email accounts. This means that Gmail users can finally manage personal and corporate emails in a single app; no more switching between different email apps.
The update is currently being rolled out and might take a few days to reach your device. Once you receive the update, you will have a dedicated Exchange option at the bottom of the list.

Before this, Gmail for Android only supported Gmail emails and other email providers like Yahoo, Outlook and Hotmail. As for iPhone users, sad to say, Google hasn’t made any announcements about bringing support for other emails for its Gmail app on iOS, so I guess you’ll just have to continue using other email apps.
Apart from updating its Gmail app for Android, Google also updated its Google Drive on the web with Chrome notifications. With the update, you will be able to get notifications directly on Chrome when people share a file or request access. This is just a minor update, but for frequent users of Google Drive, this could come in very handy as you can respond to these notifications almost immediately.
