A lot of iOS users often make use of Google Sync on their devices to synchronise with their data on Gmail and Google Calendar. To enhance their user experience, Google has given some tweaks to the Sync service.
Google Sync service now comes up with an improvised email search facility. Users can now search not only the mails residing on the phone itself in the iOS app, but even mails residing on Google servers. In simpler terms, users will now be able to search their full email history.
Another improvement in the email is for those users who have more than one email accounts. Those who send mails from other addresses than Gmail through their Gmail account, can ensure that their iOS app allows them the same facility.
Explaining the improvements, Google in a blog post said, “Send email from the address you want. We recognise that some of you manage multiple email addresses from a single Gmail account. Gmail’s “Send Mail as” feature lets you send messages with another email address listed as the sender instead of your Gmail address, e.g. email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org. Now the iOS mail app will respect these settings.”
Other users who are more interested in the Google calendar, would be glad to know they can accept or decline event invitations from the iOS calendar app directly.
Steve Hardt, software engineer, Google, adds, “Workforce is increasingly mobile, and workers on the go expect to be fully productive on email and calendar from their mobile devices. But we do want to tell you that we have a few new features for Google Sync users that will help employees work efficiently from anywhere on their iPhones and iPads.”
