Welcome to the twenty-first century, Gmail for Android

Timidly Gmail for Android has been gaining features to match the web version. We have not yet reached that point, really, but we’re getting close enough. For example, the text box to compose a message while leaving aside the plain text and lets you add bold, italic, underlined and colors, but when pasting text, is still sticking as plain text.

This changes with the latest version, which finally keeps the text format, even if it includes images. This is in fact the only way to create messages that include images embedded in the message. Gmail itself always included as attachments in place.

This improvement is otherwise double – edged weapon. By sticking with formatting, sometimes the result can be a major mess, with different font, size or color to the rest of the mail, and fix it can be quite complicated in mobile. In any case, you can always select all text, touch Format and finally tap the button crossed T, which removes the text format but keeps images and headlines.
