Google announced today that it is rolling a new version of Gmail for Android that introduces a new and improved conversation view, improved multi-select functions, and other improvements.

The cleaner conversation view is pretty self explanatory from the screenshot above, and does a good job of making it easier to see email threads that get grouped together. You can also now tap profile images of senders within the conversation view to select multiple emails in the conversation.

As for the improved multi-select functionality, Google noted that the app also now includes “checkmarks for multiple message selection so you can easily see what messages you are about to move, archive or delete.”

You’ll also now be able to see if Account Sync is disabled directly in your inbox.

The updated Gmail app is available now on Google Play.
