AndroidPolice appear to have got hold of leaked Gmail 4.2 apk, expectedly the newer version of Gmail for Android app. While they are still seeking the permissions to share the downloadable apk of Gmail 4.2, they surely have a video walkthrough to show off the cool new features like pinch-to-zoom that we may get to see soon when the app is finally released. Here is the video:
Here are some of the features that you’d see in action in above video:
- Pinch to zoom
- Swipe to delete / archive
- Report messages as spam / phising
You can configure the swipe feature to your liking.
These are some of the most wanted features for the Gmail app. Pinch to zoom, especially, is requested by many users and it looks like we are finally going to have it.
System Requirements: According to AndroidPolice, the video above was taken on Galaxy Nexus running Android Jelly Bean 4.1. So, the devices running Android 4.0+ would be able to install the app. To install it on your device, however, you’ll need to have a rooted device. So go ahead and root your device on Android 4.0+ if you haven’t done it already.
