When using Gmail on an Android device, do you find it difficult to copy and paste email addresses? A new update makes it much simpler to select an address from the available fields when creating a new email, so hopefully, those days are behind us.

When you open an email and hit the menu button, you can see a more detailed contact card, delete the contact, or copy the message. In the past, doing so would reveal a tiny pop-up box with options to “Copy” or “Cancel,” but now, the original window remains visible.
If you’re using an Android device, this new pop-up menu will make it much simpler to copy and paste an email address into a variety of fields or anywhere besides Gmail. Multiple of our own accounts have seen it, but as AP points out, it doesn’t seem to be active everywhere just yet.

A pop-up window containing the addressee’s name and the two new buttons will appear when you long-press on an email address in the To, Cc, or Bcc fields.

The newly added remove option, meanwhile, deletes the currently highlighted email address. To copy an email address in the past, one would have to pick the address, long-press on it, and then hit the Copy button.
