Apple introduced multitasking to its iPads a few years back, but Google’s Gmail didn’t support it until now. Finally, the app will appear on the Dock where all multitasking-supporting apps are listed and can be used alongside Google Photos or Google Calendar.
Multitasking on iPad is extremely useful since it comes with a native drag-and-drop feature for texts or images.
Google said in a short message that the app should already work both for G Suite customers and end-users with personal accounts, but they must make sure they have the latest version. It also urged customers to “Allow Multiple Apps” in the Home screen menu of Settings, as well as enabling keyboard shortcuts for Gmail.
