Rich text formatting and instant RSVPs now in the Gmail for Android app

An update to the Gmail for Android app is coming to Google Play. New features will include:

  • Rich Text Formatting: Want to highlight important thoughts on the go? Now you can bold, italicize, underline, add text color, change text background, and remove formatting. To format text, simply long press to select it and tap the 'format' option, next to ‘copy’ and ‘paste’.

  • Instant RSVPs: Accepting invitations on the go can be hard if you don't have access to your schedule. If you use Google Calendar or Microsoft Exchange, calendar invitations now include a one-tap option to show your schedule and respond.
