Google will soon begin rolling out a new ‘Insert’ button in Gmail, enabling users to share images with a few clicks. In its official blog, Gmail announced, “Starting today, you can save time and insert your Auto Backup photos from your phone into Gmail messages on the web using the new Insert Photo button.”
The new Gmail button will let users insert Auto Backup photos from their smartphone into Gmail messages on the web. Auto Backup is used to automatically back up photos and videos to Google+. It will also let you send photos that you upload and organize into albums on Google Photos. Moreover, you can share the entire album.

Google has been pushing out timely tweaks to spruce up the experience offered by its decade old email client. It recently updated the Gmail app for iPhone that brings pre-fetching of emails and acts as a single-point sign-in window to the major Google services available for iOS.
