Google today announced that it has changed how Gmail handles image attachments within emails. Until today, Gmail asked users to verify that the sender was trusted before downloading remote images. Now, Google serves all images from its own, secure servers. The change means that images embedded in Gmail posts will automatically be visible in emails viewed on desktop machines, as well as Android and iOS devices. Google said the functionality will roll out over the coming days.

Good and bad

I'm glad they're doing what they're doing to make viewing the images safer, but I liked being able to save bandwidth on my phone by only opening images if I needed to see them. This would have rocked back in the "unlimited data" days. 🙂
