Mobile Gmail Gets Almost All its Missing Features

The Gmail team has announced the introduction of multiple sign-in, a badly needed feature in the mobile Web version. Users can now sign into multiple Gmail accounts at once through the mobile Web interface and use a pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen to easily switch between them.

Different accounts also have different URLs, so users can bookmark their inboxes separately and add them to the home screen. The announcement also includes mobile-specific signatures and vacation auto-responder settings. Previously, messages from mobile Gmail had no signatures.

Mobile Gmail Is Almost There

This update includes almost all the features mobile Gmail was missing, but it still lacks the “Send From” option in desktop Gmail that allows users to send mail from multiple addresses.

Google Apps users – having been shafted by Google in yesterday’s slew of Google Plus announcements – will be happy to know that this feature half-works for them, too. You can switch back and forth between your personal Gmail account and your apps account from the new menu.
