Google uses Google+ for Android to make it easy to add photos to Gmail on the web

Sometimes, the minor tweaks are the most powerful. Such is true of the latest addition to Gmail on the web, rolling out today, that takes advantage of the millions of Android users automatically uploading their photos to Google+.

Google is adding an “Insert Photo” icon to Gmail’s Compose window, allowing users to add photos or entire albums from Google+ archives. Since I use both features, I can imagine this will be very useful.

The company is going one step further, too, by allowing users to resize photos within the Compose window. Very cool.
