Unified Gmail on iPadOS

 It's finally here!

As a Gsuite Admin , I have long looked forward to the roll-out of the new, unified experience in Gmail. This was rolled out recently on the web, but as an iPad institution, the eperience on iPadOS is the one we have really looked forward to. And it arrived this morning on my test account!

The Meet app on iPadOS has had its ups and downs over the last few months (crashing frequently and more recently not being able to share your screen) but now with Meet integrated properly into Gmail, there is no longer a need for the standalone Meet app. Presenting your screen works as long as you access the meeting from Gmail.

It is also great that the experience across different devices is becoming more streamlined. This really is what users want - to have a familiar experience regardless of the device that they pick up.

What do you think?
