GMail access for Mail Technical Preview users – Vivaldi Browser snapshot 2115.71

Today’s snapshot provides an alternative way for our Mail Technical Preview users to connect to GMail.

3.5 Release Candidate status

This build is an update to the stabilization branch we are using for Vivaldi 3.5 for desktop and notebooks. However, since there are no major changes to the core product since Vivaldi 3.5 Release Candidate 1 (Mail, Calendar and RSS are considered experiments at this stage), we have not labelling it as an updated RC. Nonetheless, you can upgrade to it, without issue.

GMail access work around for Technical Preview users

By going to it is possible to allow access to ‘less secure’ apps. Since Google has not yet accepted our mail client as a secure app (despite a very long standing request), we are now allowing you to connect via this alternative way, when using IMAP.
