gmailiosGoogle has certainly done a pretty decent job when it comes to empowering users of Gmail and Google Drive to share documents as well as files between both services, which is something that has been experienced on a full fledged computer – be it the notebook or the desktop, but is somewhat not as seamless on the mobile front. At least until now, as Google introduces an updated Gmail for iOS version that would make life a whole lot easier for users to check out as well as share documents in addition to files between Drive and Gmail.

This particular update means Google users who groove to iOS devices are able to view as well as save files on Google Drive straight from the Gmail app itself, thanks to the following two options – “Save to Drive” and “Insert from Drive”. Apart from that, users also have the ability to edit a file’s sharing settings via the Gmail app itself without having to head elsewhere.

In fact, the apps will inform you should your file remain not shared with the person whom you are sending it to, giving you the opportunity to change the sharing settings prior to sending it. Google has also introduced changes to Gmail’s settings menu, letting users change their profile photo from the app itself without having to head elsewhere. Gmail for Android was given such an update earlier on, so it is time for iOS users to be on par. [Press Release]
