Gmail App for iOS Gains iOS 14 Widget Support
Google today updated its Gmail app designed for the iPhone and the iPad, introducing a new widget that can be added to the Today center alongside other widgets or to the Home Screen on an iPhone.
After updating, the Gmail widget can be added to the Home Screen by pressing and holding to enter jiggle mode and then tapping the "+" button. From there, scroll down and tap on Gmail to add the widget, using a finger to drag it to the appropriate spot.
The Gmail widget can be used to search within the Gmail app, compose a new email message, or view unread email messages. It provides shortcuts for these tasks only and does not list sensitive email information nor can it be customized with other functionality.

I want widgets to be contextual, interactive, clickable and able to perform the functions of the app from the main screen without taking me to it and adding one more step to the process.
The rest of the world uses Android, but a large proportion of those users are not paying subscribers to any type of service Google offers, so... it makes sense.
