Gmail for iOS now lets you upload, share attachments from Files app
Google is making it easier to share files easier from your Gmail for iOS app. Users can now browse and attach files directly from the Files app.
The feature is available to all Gmail for iOS users. For end users, the new feature will be activated by default. To get started, tap on the attachment icon and scroll to the "Attachments" section when you're creating an email, said Google in a post. This also works when you're replying to an email. Once you've scrolled to the section, choose the folder icon to upload an attachment from the Google Files application.
The update to Google's Gmail for iOS application comes after the company launched support to send emails as attachments. Initially rolled out for G Suite users, Gmail allow users to forward emails as attachments.
"We've heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client," said Google in a blog post in December last year.
