If you’ve always loved Google’s most popular email service, then you are in for a special treat as Gmail has undergone major revamps to give you the best email experience ever. Here are a few new features you will find in Gmail, and we have to admit they are super cool!
To check out this cool feature, place your mouse cursor over an email and you will see a row of options (such as delete, archive, mark as read, and snooze) pop up on the right side of the email’s subject.
With the new Gmail, you can snooze emails. This means you can make an email vanish for as long as you want. After the vanishing time runs out, the email bubbles up as a new email.
If you use Gmail mobile, then you are most likely already familiar with the Smart Reply feature. When you click Reply, Gmail will suggest three suggested responses will pop up. You can add either of these responses to the body of your email with a single click, and save yourself the stress of punching in extra words.
This is perhaps, one feature that Gmail users are going to go bonkers over. This feature allows you to click and open attachments without having to open the entire email. Any attachment appears as an inline prompt within Gmail, so you can just fetch the attachment quickly. We’ll be honest; this feature is a real time-saver.
The Plus mention is also another time-saving feature that Gmail now offers its users. So what does this do? Plus Mentions allow you to add a recipient to the CC field without clicking away from the body of your message. While composing your message and you mention a contact, simply type the + sign and click on the contact’s name or email address from the list. Ta-da! It’s that simple!
HIGH PRIORITY NOTIFICATIONS
Tired of getting a notification every time you get a new email? Including the irrelevant ones? Well, you can heave a sigh with this new Gmail feature. The High Priority Notifications feature allows Gmail mobile users to customize their email prompts according to their preference. So, you could set your Gmail to only notify you about emails flagged as important.
Sounds crazy, right? But now, Gmail can nudge you every time you or a recipient forgets to take action on any email. We have to admit that this is one fantastic feature because emails are pretty easy to forget.
If you thought all these new features were cool, wait till you learn about the Confidential Mode feature. This feature allows you to send messages confidentially; this means a third party won’t be able to access this message except for the recipient of your message. You can set a message to self-destruct after a specified time or even revoke it. Another option is to include a password, which the recipient will have to input without accessing your message. Yes, we did tell you this is one cool feature.
