Ever felt like taming your Gmail inbox on-the-go was like herding cats? Well, good news is on the horizon.

Gmail‘s latest update for its Android app is about to be your new best friend. They’re rolling out a “Select All” button, letting you swiftly pick up to 50 emails, whether they’re just lounging in your inbox or hiding after a search.

The folks at Gmail believe this addition will simplify the inbox-cleaning process for mobile users.

Where to download the update?

The much-anticipated update is making its grand entrance.


Although the function has been available on desktop for a long time, this is the first time it has come to mobile devices. The decision to limit selection to a maximum of 50 emails is the same as the desktop version, which might sound like a shortcoming, but it’s definitely a tool we use all the time.

Now, while our desktop pals have been enjoying the “Select All” magic for a while, it’s the mobile brigade’s turn to join the party. And sure, the 50-email cap might seem like they’re keeping the reins tight, but trust us, it’s a feature we find ourselves tapping into quite often.

This past June, Google spilled the beans about their AI-driven “Help Me Write” feature for Gmail, and guess what? It’s not just for the desktop elite anymore.

This handy tool, once a VIP perk for Workspace testers, is now set to grace both Android and iOS. Whether you’ve got a draft that’s feeling a bit “meh” or you’re staring at a blank slate, “Help Me Write” jumps in, crafting snazzy emails and letting you fine-tune to your heart’s content.

But, hold up! It’s not all smooth sailing. Some folks have given Gmail a side-eye for sneaking ads into our mobile inboxes. And, oh boy, the chatter about the vanishing red notification icon on Android? Let’s just say, people noticed.
