Gmail adds rich text formatting and instant RSVPs to Android app

New, 3 comments

Gmail for Android is making it a bit easier to add some flair to your email text and quickly respond to calendar invites with a single tap. Today, a new update for the app will add support for rich text formatting — bold, italics, underlined / colored text, etc. — so you'll have extra tools at your disposal to get a point across, add emphasis to your text, or craft the signature you've always wanted right inside the app. And separately, calendar invites "from both Google Calendar and Microsoft Exchange" will now display a one-tap option to respond and view your schedule for the requested time slot.

The small-but-useful update should be available from the Google Play Store sometime today.
