On Google+, the search giant announced, “If you forget to set a vacation responder as you scramble to pack for a flight, you’re in luck since you can now create or update an auto responder message right in the Gmail app on Android. In addition to photos and videos, you can send attachments—documents, PDFs, zip files—of any type. You can also print hard copies of your emails if you’re using Android 4.4 KitKat. And finally, you’ll notice enhanced performance of the app on low memory devices as part of Project Svelte.”

In a nutshell, the update includes:

  • Improved sync and outbox behavior
  • Contact photos turn into checkboxes when selected
  • Fresh new look
