Gmail has launched one of its biggest updates since the last time I changed the service in 2012. In this article, I am going to tell you all the news of the latest Gmail update, designed to improve your productivity, and how you can activate it in your email account now.
Gmail is already a key tool for employee productivity, especially if you know how to get the most out of it, but with the latest update, they seem to have improved the experience even more.
This is the first update that Gmail has launched since 2012, and brings us the most important news. Unlike the last time, the design has not changed much. If the current structure is popular with users, why change it and force them to adapt to the new style?
” Business users do not like a new version of Gmail to appear without warning, ” said Jacob Bank, product manager for Gmail and Inbox, according to Fast Company.
Instead, they have focused on the service’s own functions, expanding the wide range of possibilities that Gmail offers us. It is integrated into G suite, along with other apps such as Google Docs, so they could create a product for paid businesses with more features – there will always be the free version supported by the ads.
List of New Gmail Updates
Here are the all the biggest updates offered by Gmail now.
Emails that disappear
You can program an email to disappear after a certain period of time. It is the first email service that facilitates this possibility, increasing the privacy and confidentiality of the user. It will also work with cross emails between Gmail users and other platforms, only instead of appearing as a normal mail, they will have to use a link to access the message. Awesome isn’t it? How many of you were waiting for this feature?
Deactivate the resend function
Another measure to increase confidentiality: the agent may decide if he/she wants to allow the mail to be forwarded or not.
Verification in two steps for private emails
If you have a very private content you can activate the verification in two steps; the receiver will have to enter a message that he will receive via SMS to open the email.
Most obvious anti-phishing notifications
Gmail will make sure to inform you when a message is suspicious, increasing the size of the message that warns you of the same and will appear at the top of the email itself.
Reminders of unread emails
If Gmail detects that there is a message that could be important in your inbox it will place it at the top of the list and inform you of how many days have passed since you received it. It can also inform you that you have not responded to an email that could be relevant. Yes, this function is optional.
Perform functions without opening the mail
You can download a file, mute a message or add an event to the calendar without opening the mail.
Special notifications for important messages
Optionally you can ask Gmail to notify you in a special way when an email arrives from someone important, which will determine according to the frequency of exchange of messages you have with that person, among others.
Cancel subscriptions more easily
It is quite easy to cancel your email subscriptions in Gmail, but now the platform will arise when you notice that you never open emails from that recipient.
The automatic response arrives in the browser
The automatic response using AI will be available for both mobile and browser.
More features offline
Now you can perform more features in Gmail without a connection than before and you will not need to add a Chrome extension.
More direct access to other Google apps
On the right, you will find quick access to apps like Google Calendar or Google Tasks. You can also add some third-party services that use Google’s add-on technology.
