Google added the new features to the Gmail for Mobile which includes- multiple sign-in support, mobile-specific signature and vacation auto-responder.

Google already supporting multiple sign-in feature on desktop and now Gmail mobile user can enjoy this feature too by sign-in into multiple accounts simultaneously.

To sign into an additional account, click on the account switcher at the bottom of the threadlist, then click “Sign into an another account.” You can quickly switch between accounts by selecting the desired account from the Accounts menu.

As part of added multiple sign-in support, Google have updated URLs so that each account can have a separate bookmark. For those who have previously bookmarked Gmail for Mobile, please update your bookmark. If you haven’t, now is a great time to head to on your smartphone or tablet browser and add a bookmark to your home screen.

Gmail for Mobile autoresponder

Google also gives a pretty good reason why you need "Mobile-Specific signature" feature. “We know that autocorrect and other mobile spell-checks can be frustrating as you are typing on the go” says Mobile Software Engineer Dominic Leung. “Let your friends know that you are responding via your mobile phone so that they understand why you might have sent a message that you are meeting for ‘monitors’ and not ‘mojitos’.”

To create a mobile signature, from the menu view, press the new settings icon, choose your signature, and then check the box to activate it. If you ever want to disable the mobile signature, just uncheck the box.

You can now set your auto-reply using the mobile interface which works pretty much same as on the desktop interface.
