Hey there G!

Hope you are well.
I am developing a responsive email and I’m having some trouble with the ever infamous Android 5.1.0 & Android Gmail 6.
For some reason my queries are not working and I was hoping you could shed some light for me on how to make this better. #iHope
On Android 4.4.4, it works like a charm but Android 5.1.0 & Android Gmail are not showing up responsively.
Could you be so kind as to take a look at my results and html?  As always thanks in advance for your valuable time. ;0)

Here are my results so far:

asiaminor,
Sorry to disappoint, but at the moment Gmail and Android 5.1 don’t support media queries. That’s why you’re not seeing responsive behavior.

Gmail has announced that they will soon support media queries: https://www.emailonacid.com/blog/article/industry-news/gmail-announces-style-and-media-query-support-what-this-means-for-you

Android 5.1 will probably never support media queries. To make your email “responsive” there, you’d need to use fluid hybrid design: https://www.emailonacid.com/blog/article/email-development/a-fluid-hybrid-design-primer
