The Gmail Go app is basically a lighter version of the Gmail app, but supports nearly all the basic features of the main app, including multiple account support and letting you set up non-Gmail accounts such as Yahoo mail, Outlook.com or any other IMAP/POP accounts. This marks yet another addition to Google's line of Go apps, which already includes YouTube Go, Gboard Go, and Assistant apps. The size of the app, as reported by Android Police goes up to 24.80MB as opposed to 47.28MB for the regular app.
Google Phone v17 should be rolling out to the Play Store now, but if you're impatient and don't want to wait, you can always download the APK file to your device.
The company mentioned in a description, "The Gmail you love, now lighter and just as fast". This is what makes the Gmail Go work smoothly on the Android Go phone size despite its smaller memory.More news: Central funding states irrespective of whoever is ruling: Arun Jaitley

The app also groups emails from all IMAP, POP3, and Exchange accounts under one roof.
For all those Android users who are struggling every time they have to check their email or messages due to low-performance devices, Google is launching lightweight apps that require fewer resources. As of now, this toned down version of the original Gmail app is available only to the Web users, and not listed on Google Play store app mobile version. Gmail Go also allows to set up multiple accounts, so that you set up both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses - Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail, or other IMAP/POP email. Further, you can add a label to your emails to categorise them as per your requirements.
In fact, according to numerous reports, Gmail Go clocked in at a 9.51 MB download, and takes up roughly 25 MB of space on a device, compared with Gmail's 20.66 MB download, and 47 MB storage space. "Plus, find messages quickly with powerful search and lots more".
