Gmail for iOS Updated with Direct Links to YouTube, Chrome and Google Maps

Google issued an update for its iOS Gmail client on Monday that adds several useful features that will help users stay within Google’s products. You can now automatically launch YouTube, Google Maps or Chrome if a link is embedded in an email. That means you won’t need to leave Google and you won’t accidentally launch an address in Apple Maps or a web site in Safari.

The implementation is optional, and you’ll need Google Maps, Chrome and YouTube installed first if you want to take advantage of the features. Google said you can turn off the automatic linking in the in-app settings. The software also has support for signing out of a single account, such as your work or personal account, without having to sign out of both at the same time.

Gmail version 2.2.7182 is free and is available for the iPad and the iPhone.
