Gmail 5.0, the latest version of Google’s email client, has been leaked. Featuring an all-new Material Design look, along with support for Yahoo Mail and Outlook, Gmail 5.0 is really something special. Thankfully, we’ve got the APK file for you here ready to download. Find out all of the Gmail 5.0 features below.

Not content with springing Inbox on us recently, Google has also updated its classic email client. Of course, Gmail 5.0 is dripping with Material Design, but there are some new features which address the functionality also, chief among these is its integration with with other email clients.

For users of Yahoo, Outlook and Hotmail, Gmail is now capable of acting as an inbox for those addresses too, reducing the need for multiple apps/log-ins to browse through your email. This is a welcome addition, as going through three different apps just to check unread mail is an unnecessary time sink.

Where this app fits alongside Inbox is still something of a mystery, as it houses most of the same features, it just looks a little different and currently doesn’t have the “reminders” function. Take a look at some of the screenshots of it below:

Remember that the APKs are signed by Google and will update the Gmail app already installed on your Android. To Install the Gmail 5.0 APK you will have to allow access to unknown sources in the security settings. If you don't have it already, download and install Gmail from the Play Store first before downloading the 5.0 update APK file.

    Been using this for a few days now and I like it, I like it alot. Next Article for the AndroidPIT team the "New Google Calendar" 👍😉

    Great work guy's you just need to add a notification tone to your App or to allow Lightflow to pick the App up so I can add my own tone. AndroidPIT is the only App I can't set a notification tone for 😢
