Previously, only Google Nexus owners had the Exchange support but the ability has been expanded to a billion other Android owners. "Exchange support was previously only available on our Nexus devices, but as of today, Exchange support covers mail, contacts, and calendar data in Android across all devices," a Google spokesperson added.
While Microsoft Outlook is more popular, Exchange is still the defacto standard for many corporate email systems, as well as calendar syncing.
Thanks to the new support, business employees can now use Exchange through their Gmail app, getting their work email, contacts and calendars without the need for a separate app.
