— 11:38 AM on October 20, 2014

Android users may be pleasantly surprised when they fire up the Gmail app in Android 5.0 Lollipop. As Android Police reports, the new app won't just boast an updated look based on Google's Material Design style. It will also lets you add accounts from third-party e-mail providers:

Nifty. The video says accounts from Yahoo,, "and more" will be supported. I hope that means you'll be able to add any old POP or IMAP e-mail service, too.

Android 5.0 Lollipop officially launched last week. The operating system will come pre-loaded on Google's new Nexus devices, which are due out next month. Google also plans to release Android 5.0 for older Nexus and Google Play edition devices "in the coming weeks."

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
