The promised "Package Tracking" from Google on GMail is here.

Last year Google talked about bringing "Package Tracking" to GMail and it is finally here.

Google is always slow to bringing these things, but at least, it's here.

If you want to enable it, take the following steps:

1. Open the GMail app.

2. Tap on the “Navigation Drawer” on the top-left corner of your phone.

3. Scroll down all the way to the bottom of the list of the items that result from tapping on the “navigation Drawer.”

4. Find and tap on “Settings.”

5. Choose your account, in other words, tap on your username that is fond among the items that resulted from tapping on “Settings.”

6. Now that you have tapped on the account you want to use, scroll down, find, and tap on the item that says: "Package Tracking, Google will share tracking numbers for Your packages with shipping carriers; you'll get status updates here in GMail" and by default, this is turned off, turn it on if this is what you want.

You may need to update your GMail, but I think it's a server-side push as opposed to an actual update to the client.
