Yesterday we reported that the Gmail app in Android 5.0 Lollipop would also be able to handle Outlook and Yahoo accounts natively. We now know that on top of support for those clients, Gmail will also support Exchange mail, removing the need for the AOSP Email app. In fact, when opening the Email application in Lollipop, users will be prompted to use the Gmail app instead.
Its safe to say that the Email app will probably be performing a vanishing act in the near future as Gmail continues to add support for more email services. It will be interesting to see how this change is received by users. Let us know in the comments what you think of Google’s new all-in-one approach to Email.
