Users gain by linking the email to a Gmail account, inter alia, the spam filter of Gmail, but continue to mail to and from the address, says Google. The function can mails from other mail providers also appear as cards in Google Now, the digital assistant of the search giant.

To activate the feature, users must in the Gmail app, which already supports more accounts from other email providers, linking the account to Gmail.
