If I want to share a link to something interesting on the web, I'll click Share and Gmail. The web address is inserted in an e-mail. If I send the email to myself (or presumably to someone else) and read it, the link is in black and white rather than blue. If you click on it, nothing happens.
I've tried this with Gmail on my Nexus 10 tablet and my Nokia 5 phone.
The e-mail account is an IMAP account.
