Google begins displaying ads in Gmail Android app for some users


Following the discovery late last month that Google could possibly be planning on integrating ads into the Gmail app on Android, today a new report claims that it has already started doing so for at least some users. (via Phandroid) posted the screenshot above showing what appears to be ads in the Promotions inbox similar to what Google already displays on the desktop version of Gmail. It’s always possible that Google is simply testing the ads ahead of a larger rollout, but it’s worth noting that we can’t 100% guarantee the images are real. We’ll be on the lookout for the ads stateside, but you can let us know in the comments below if you’ve begun receiving advertisements in Gmail for Android.
