Many consumers rely on their smartphones for most, if not all, of their computing tasks, including browsing the web and email. Sometimes using email on your smartphone can be a pain, though, because many messages are formatted for the desktop. Google is aiming to fix this.
Google will update Gmail and Inbox by Gmail to support emails with responsive design. That means that emails with responsive design will adapt to fit your smartphone’s screen. Text, links, and buttons will become larger so that they’re easier to read and tap on your phone’s screen.
This goes the other way, too. If you’re on your desktop and receive an email that’s designed for mobile, it’ll be adapted to better fit your larger screen.
Support for emails with responsive design in Gmail and Inbox is a pretty nifty addition. With it, you won’t have to scroll around a huge email that’s formatted for the desktop, saving you time.
This feature is rolling out to Gmail and Inbox by Gmail later this month, so keep an eye out for it.
