There is much to rejoice for Gmail users on Android. The Gmail App is one of the most widely prevalent app in the Android world. However, the limitation of the Gmail app not supporting the Microsoft Exchange account on other Android devices apart from the Nexus has been eliminated. Yes, you got it right! Now you will be able to use and access your work email via the Gmail app even if you are an Enterprise user.
So now there are more reasons to like your favorite email app for your android device. It is towards the fag end of the April month of the year 2016 that Google established another milestone to provide an awesome experience to its users. It updated its email app i.e. the Gmail app to work alike on all Android devices by supporting the Microsoft Exchange Email Accounts. This is one of the revolutionary improvisations made by Google as this limitation was one of the most blazing shortcomings that were reported by the Gmail app users on Android. With this limitation being ironed out Gmail now allows the flexibility to its users to use the same app for managing both personal as well as professional email accounts.
Due to inclusion of this feature or support for the Microsoft accounts, now users can find a Exchange option while adding an email account into Gmail. The option occurs towards the bottom of the list. Google has also announced that the updated Gmail app will have this feature and will be available for download from the Play Store of the Android devices very shortly. This new feature will now help you configure your Office 365 account on the Gmail app as well.
Nexus was the only device which had the capability of support for the Microsoft Enterprise Server via the Gmail app since the year 2014. Now with the extension of this capability to the other Android devices, Google has cemented its position further, as the accomplished and inclusive email app for the Android users. It already had the features of supporting other third party email clients like Yahoo, Hotmail and Outlook in its app that was made for Android.
Google is still working on enhancing the capabilities of its Gmail app for the iOS platform because the app currently only supports the Gmail accounts on the iOS platform for the Apple phones.
So now make use of the advanced features of Gmail and enjoy a seamless email viewing experience with its simple UI even for your work email that works with the Microsoft Exchange servers.
