A Quick Rundown of the New Gmail
Email is a must for most of us. We use it to keep in touch with colleagues and friends, follow the latest news, manage the house at home or at work – we just can not live without it. Yesterday, Google announced significant improvements in Gmail on the web to help people be more productive at work. Here’s a quick look at how the new Gmail can help you achieve more from your mailbox.
Do more without leaving your inbox
A new look at Gmail helps you do more. Click on attachments like photos, without opening or scrolling large conversations, use the new replay button to postpone emails that you simply can not get right now, or easily access other applications that you often use, such as Google Calendar, Tasks (now available on Android and iOS) and Keep.
Gmail will also “push” you to follow-up and respond to messages with quick reminders that appear next to your e-mails to make sure that nothing slips through the cracks.
We also add a Smart Reply to Gmail on the Internet to respond faster to messages.
New features on mobile devices, such as high-priority notifications, can notify you of important messages that will help you focus without interruption. In addition, Gmail will start offering when to unsubscribe from newsletters or offers that you no longer care about.
And you can notice new warnings in Gmail that warn you when a potentially dangerous email arrives.
Finally, the new Gmail confidential mode allows you to remove the option for sending, copying, downloading or printing messages useful for sending sensitive information via e-mail, for example, a tax return or your social security number. You can also expire the message after a certain period of time to help you control your information.
You can start using these new updates in Gmail on the Internet today, and some features will appear in the coming weeks. Go to Settings (the wheel in the upper right corner of your mailbox) and select “Try new Gmail“. If you want to return later on the road, you can go to the same place and choose “Back to Classic Gmail.” This handy product guide will help you get started.
