Earlier in this month  the search Engine giant Google has introduced the Insert from Drive feature to the Gmail for Android app user, by which the app users directly share their Drive files in emails. And in the month of May they also launched the Save to Drive option for the Gmail for Android app. And now the Google has announced that the same features  are available to the iOS platform for iPhone and iPad users.


In an official Gmail blog,  the software engineer Simon Forsyth has said that, “Just like with Gmail on the web, you can now insert files from Google Drive directly into an email on your phone or tablet. The apps will even tell you if your file isn’t shared with the person you’re sending it to so you can change the sharing settings before you send it. And to help you store all your files in a single place, if someone sends you an email attachment, you can save it directly to Drive with one tap.”

As Forsyth  provides such details of this update,  such as, if the users have multiple Gmail accounts they can choose which signed-in accounts can be made visible on the app. There is a also a new feature, which seems to be added to have been added as a bonus to the Gmail for iOS app, allows users to change their profile picture directly from the settings. It is available for devices running iOS 6.0 or higher.
