The Gmail app on Android is now getting an overdue functionality that was introduced on desktop back in February 2020. The feature is called "chips" and is basically filters that help you narrow down your search once you enter somethin into the search box.
The filters help you find a mail from a specific person, in a specific time frame, with attachment or not and if it's unread or not. The chips, however, seem to appear only to some users so it's a server-side update for now.
Yes, really! Is there a concern with what I said?
Main screen is now bloated. Showing only 6 messages. Bottom toolbar is also have grown in size.
They always take inspiration. To forget the idea again after 2 or 3 updates. Google.
