    Google has recently released an important update to the official Gmail app for iPhone and iPad users, bringing the “Insert from Drive” and “Save to Drive” functionality to iOS users. Thus, with this update Google brings the app on the same line as the Gmail app for Android and web, letting iPhone/iPad owners insert files stored in their Google Drive accounts.

    The updated Gmail application also includes the ability to save attachments in emails to the drive app directly from within the iOS app. Here's how the official changelog sounds like:

    - Save attachments directly to Google Drive so you can access them anywhere while saving space and bandwidth on your device
    - Insert Google Drive files directly into messages
    - New account management options to choose which accounts you want to have visible in Gmail without removing accounts from your device
    - Change your profile picture (in Settings)

    So, we can see that besides the new features related to Google Drive, it's now now finally possible to change your profile picture in the Settings menu. Also. you can make use of the new account management options in order to choose which accounts you want to have visible in Gmail without having to remove them.

    Also, the updated app will warn users if a drive attachment hasn’t yet been shared with the recipient so you can change the settings before sending the email. Follow the link from below and get the latest version on your iPhone or iPad right away.
