Email delegation is now available to all Google Apps customers. This Gmail feature was previously only available to Google Apps for Business.

Editions included:
Google Apps and Google Apps for Education

Languages included:
All languages supported by Gmail

How to access what's new:
Administrators must first enable mail delegation by checking the 'Mail Delegation' checkbox under 'Email Settings' in the administrator control panel.

To enter a delegate, users can select the 'Accounts' tab under 'Settings' in Gmail and click 'Add another account' to enter their delegate's email address.

The following new features are now available to all Google Apps domains:

Gmail for Android:
Priority Inbox - You can now see important messages in a new Priority Inbox view, see the importance markers and change the importance of conversations, just like in the desktop version. Additionally, you can now set up your phone to notify, vibrate, or ring on just your new important mail.

Improved Compose - You can now easily switch between reply, reply all and forward while composing your response. As well as that, if you’ve configured the ‘custom from’ feature in the desktop version of Gmail, you can now also send email from that address. Finally, you can also now respond to messages in-line.

Gmail webapp: Previously only available in U.S. English, the HTML5 webapp version of Gmail is now available to 44 languages.

The new languages are: Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (UK and American), Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian (Bokmal), Polish, Portuguese (for both Portugal and Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian, Urdu and Vietnamese.

How to access what's new:

This version of the Gmail app works for Android 2.2 (Froyo) and newer releases in most countries. (Not sure if your device is running the right version? Check here.)

Gmail mobile webapp: If your phone’s default language is one of those listed, go to gmail.com in your phone’s browser and the new interface will appear in your language automatically. This new version works for iPhones running iOS 2.2.1 and above, and all versions of Android.
