Emailing is a big part of our work, they help us keep in touch with our colleagues, friends and sometimes family. Most of our work time is spent on emails – we cannot work without it.
That is why, Google has announced some new features to improve the look and feel of our Gmail on the web to help people be more productive at work.
Here is a Quick look at how the new Gmail can help you accomplish more from your inbox.
Do more without leaving your inbox
Gmail’s new look helps you get more done. Click on attachments – like documents – without opening or scrolling through large conversations.
Utilise the snooze button to simply put off emails that you just can’t get to right now. You can also access your other apps you use often like Calendar, Tasks (Now available on Android and iOS) and Keep.
Gmail will also “nudge” you to to follow up and respond to to messages with quick reminders that appear next to your email messages to help make sure nothing slips through the cracks.
The next best part of all this is the inbuilt smart reply feature! It has been added to Gmail on the web to help you reply to messages faster.
Confidential mode activated!
Finally, a new confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, download, copy or print messages – useful for when you have to send sensitive information via email like tax returns or private information. You can also make a message expire (disappear from the recipients inbox) after a set period of time to help you stay in control of your information.
You can start using these new updates in Gmail on the web today, with some features appearing within the coming weeks. Go to settings (the cog wheel in the top right corner of your inbox) and select “Try the new Gmail.” If you want to switch to the old classic look after some time, you can change it back a the same place and select “Go back to Classic Gmail.”
