7 best features of the new Gmail

Gmail is now the number one mailing service out there, offering simple user interface and advanced features. Google has been improving Gmail since the launch day, expanding its usefulness just beyond being able to send and receive emails. You now can do a lot more things with Gmail.

Google, the biggest search engine on Earth, has just announced a new update to its mailing service. The update comes with significant changes while adding a ton of new features to Gmail. Tech experts say that the new Gmail is the biggest update Google has ever released to the public in recent years, which changes your mailing experience.

In the section below, we have compiled a list of the best features of new Gmail. Before we begin, note that the new Gmail is still rolling out to users worldwide, so some of its new features are not available yet.

7 best features of the new Gmail

  1. Inline action buttons

One of the biggest additions to Gmail lies in inline action buttons. From now on, when you move your cursor over an email, you should see a popup menu that includes a row of options, including Archive, Delete, Mark as Read and Snooze. Google claims that there will have more options in future updates.

Inline action buttons come in handy as it makes your mailing experience less painful. If you want to remove an email, you simply hover your mouse over an email and hit the Delete button. This method eliminates the need to check the box on the left of an email and hit the Delete button.

  1. Snooze messages

With a new Gmail, Google finally adds a highly anticipated feature, called Snoozing. Basically, the feature allows you to hide your emails for a set period of time. This comes in handy for those who need more time to reply to an email. To snooze your email, you simply move your mouse over your desired email, then select Snooze button from the list of options and pick date and time.

  1. A new look

The new version of Gmail introduces an overhauled design, making it more visually appealing and intuitive. On the right side of the screen, you should see a strip of icons that offer quick access to Google Calendar, Keep, and Tasks.

This is a great addition to Gmail, as you can easily compose your email while checking your daily schedule. On the left side, Gmail now allows you to shrink icons, allowing for more screen’s space. If you have a new email, then you should see a little number icon at the top of the inbox’s icon on the left.

  1. Attachments

The new Gmail now allows you to open attachments with a simple click of button. All you need to do now is to click on the attachment button to access it, which comes in handy as it removes the need to open the entire message first.

  1. Confidential mode

With a new version of Gmail, Google adds more privacy to your emails, mainly thanks to its confidential mode. As the name implies, the new mode allows you to send self-destructing emails to other people.

In reality, self-destructing message is not something new out there, as it has been an integral part of top messaging apps out there, like Snapchat, Telegram or Cover Me. The idea behind self-destructing messages is to protect your personal information from the prying eyes.

However, confidential mode is not available yet, so Google is expected to launch it in future updates. Some reliable reports claim that Google will add two-factor authentication support for confidential messages, requiring the recipient to enter a passcode before they can read a message.

  1. Smart Reply

Smart Reply has been a part of the mobile version of Gmail for a while, allowing users to reply to a message with a single click. With a new version of Gmail, Google finally brings Smart Reply to the desktop service. From now on, when you click the Reply button, you will be presented with three different responses to pick from.

  1. Notifications

Google introduces a number of changes for the mobile version of Gmail. From now on, you can turn on notifications for your most important emails. To do this, you simply need to hit the Turn On button when you get a pop-up menu.
