Gmail updated featuring new UI tweaks and features

Gmail for Android has been updated to version 4.8, which offers a host of new features including “Save to Google Drive”, print attachments directly in Gmail, and some UI tweaks to clean things up a bit.

Google has moved the Settings, Help and Feeback menu buttons from the overflow menu to the sliding navigation drawer at the bottom. The new update also shows your Google+ avatar linked Gmail account instead of just the boring dot beside the Gmail account.

Google will also show the rest of truncated messages and explain why a message is marked as spam at the top of the email. Google has also improved reading for right-to-left languages including Arabic, Hebrew and Persian.

Gmail 4.8 will be rolling out in the coming days to users.  I have already received the update and usually I am the last one.  I am located in the southeast United States, so hopefully others are getting it today as well.
