If you're like me you're just about sick to death of having to click 'Show Pictures' in basically every email you receive in Gmail. The good news is that you don't need to worry about it anymore, thanks to the latest update to the Gmail app for Android (v4.7.2), which has finally enabled the auto-loading of images. You can get the APK download below if you can't wait for the official update to arrive on your device (it hasn't even been updated in the Play Store yet).
You don't need to do anything once you've installed the new app update – all images will automatically be loaded in your emails. If you want to turn off this function you can simply go into the settings for your individual email accounts. You don't even need to worry about the safety of the auto-loading images (which is one of the reasons why the Show Pictures action was introduced), because Google host the images on their servers first, meaning any gremlins are expunged before they ever make it to your precious Android.
Have you got the new Gmail? Are you happy to have images load automatically?
