Sponsored links, if any, appear in green.

Clicking links in the Gmail app for iOS previously opened those links in Gmail's mobile web viewer or Safari, but an update to the app now gives users the option of opening links directly in Google's appropriate iOS apps. Users can enable the feature by launching Gmail and tapping the "Google Apps" button within the Settings menu. Gmail will then automatically open YouTube links in the YouTube app, addresses in Google Maps, and web addresses in Chrome. A Gmail button in the top left will provide a way to return to emails with one tap. Gmail also updated to support signing out of one account rather than all accounts at once.
