Gmail can now be Set as your Default Email App with Apple's Latest iOS 14 Update
There is some exciting news related to the Gmail app. A recent update released by Google will allow users to set the Gmail app as the default email app on devices that are updated with the iOS 14 software.
With the launch of iOS 14, Apple released a major update that would be allowing third-party email applications to take the place of the default email app. However, developers are required to support the newly introduced feature.
The process for this is simple. Head over to the Settings app in iOS and click on the 'Gmail Menu'. Later, tap on the 'Default Mail App' that has been recently added as an option by Apple.
Google seems to be the first one to add support for Chrome to be set as the default browser on iOS 14 much before the final release of the Apple software. It also needs to be noted that after users tried using this feature, they have experienced some issues.
