Google said a while a go that “Loading images [in Gmail] is now safer, so you’ll automatically see all images within a message when you open it” and after the feature was integrated on the web version of the mail client, now it also made it to the Android Gmail 4.7.2 app. Because Google is now hosting the images of your male on their own proxy servers, you will now longer have to press the “show pictures” message, as they will be displayed as default.
Even though the Gmail 4.7.2 update is available in Google Play some of you might not be able to download and install it right away. Fortunately, you can download the Gmail 4.7.2 APK file at the bottom of this article and simply install it on your Android terminal to update the Gmail app to the latest version. In fact, the Gmail 4.7.2 update is so fresh that Google didn’t even had time to update the Play Store description. At least that’s how it was at the time the article was written.
If for some reason you don’t like the Gmail images to be shown as default, you can disable the function in the settings menu. Furthermore, you can have different settings for individual email accounts. We don’t think there will be any other significant changes besides the aforementioned safer image loading, but we find something worth mentioning we will update this post.
