Google continues to show the love to Microsoft Exchange users with the latest update to Gmail. The update is rolling out now and when you get it, you will be able to manage your tasks setup in your Exchange account through the app. No longer do you have to depend on another app (like Outlook for Android) or your desktop client to manage them.
Google has supported Exchange accounts in Gmail on Nexus devices going back to the Nexus 5 but it wasn’t until mid-year last year that they opened this feature up to non-Nexus devices. Since then, Google has been tweaking improvements into the app for Exchange but no major feature changes have happened until today.
That’s not to say other apps haven’t also done a better job of supporting Exchange. Google Calendar also does a great job of supporting the service by
letting you find available times of contacts to setup a meeting.
All of this, as Google states in the release announcing this new feature, adds up to increased productivity on your mobile device.
Everyone should see this update to Gmail over the course of the next couple of days so keep an eye out for it, particularly those of you who have Exchange accounts.
