Microsoft Exchange was available only on Nexus devices, as this feature was introduced a few months ago, but bow, Gmail is bringing support for Microsoft Exchange accounts to its Gmail app on all Android devices. Google hasn’t specified if Exchange support will roll out to the iOS app, as well. The latest version of Gmail for Android can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, while though the rollout, it may take a few days to be sent to all users.
On April 25, a Google spokesperson has declared that “Exchange support was previously only available on our Nexus devices, but as of today, Exchange support covers mail, contacts, and calendar data in Android across all devices.” It is known that almost a year ago, Gmail on Android has introduced the option to set up email from Yahoo or Hotmail account, so users were able to access their accounts inside Gmail. This made Gmail an email-management tool, but support for Exchange accounts has been quite limited until now.
Users needed a Gmail account for work and a personal email on an Android device, so the Exchange support made removed roadblock for them. Previously, work email addresses using Microsoft Exchange servers were only available for Nexus devices, as well as for some devices running on Android 5.0 Lollipop and newer. “Now, whether you’re on Google Apps or Exchange, you can use the Gmail app on any Android device to send and receive mail,” has written Google in a blogpost.
This new has made happy many users who wanted Exchange to work with Gmail on Android. The update to the Gmail app on Android with support for Exchange is expected to roll out in the next few days, so just wait patiently for the update notification.
When Outlook was launched for Android, over a year ago, it was a good option that allowed users to manage multiple email accounts.
