We are just over 48 hours away from one of the most-anticipated days of the year. On November 3, Google will release Android 5.0 Lollipop to all Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10 users. Android 5.0 is considered the biggest overhaul to the Android OS to date, coming with new designs, funtionality, ART runtime, and complete Google app redesigns. One of Google’s most popular apps that is getting an overhaul is Gmail.
Gmail is the default email service for many Android and iOS users, having over 425 million active users daily. Many saw the updated Gmail in screenshots and videos of Android 5.0 Lollipop on the all new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices, but it wasn’t available to the public, until now.
A Reddit user, named redthunda69 has posted that the Gmail 5.0 APK file has leaked, and is available for download. We can verify that it works and we did not need to uninstall the current version of Gmail, it overwrites it just as a typical app update would.
You can find the file here. Let us know what you think of the Gmail 5.0 overhaul!
