Google rolled out on Wednesday its biggest redesign of Gmail since 2013. Smart Reply is now part of Gmail on the web to make replying faster. With the option enabled, Google will only deliver push notifications for messages that are deemed important or urgent, with Baker noting that the feature will cut "97% of all push notifications across Gmail users".
Google's Gmail which is arguably one of the world's most popular email service is receiving a major overhaul today which not only includes a redesign but also a host of new features. This lets users not only lock a message containing sensitive information, but lets you set an expiration date for when the email will disappear, the same way an ephemeral message would on Snapchat. This mode will begin to roll out to consumer users and a limited number of G Suite customers in the next few weeks, with a broader roll-out to follow. Notwithstanding, the choice wasn't accessible for us right now, so the take-off is by all accounts slower than anticipated. Since a very long time, there has been no update to the Gmail's UI or its related app.
As the sender, the content will remain in your inbox, securely encrypted, and you can revoke access at any time. That doesn't prevent someone from doing something like snapping a a photo with a phone, but Google figures that making even a little more of a hassle to leak a confidential email will dissuade many folks.
Gmail's High-priority notifications feature can also recommend when to unsubscribe from mailing lists. It's introduced a feature called Nudging, which bumps potentially important messages back to the top of your inbox after a few days as a reminder to deal with them. You can add different tasks or things you need to get done by hitting the big blue "Add a new task" button. Now there's a high priority option, which only alerts you when an important email arrives. And if you get a message that's supposedly from one of your contacts, but which originates from an unfamiliar email address-possibly because it's really from a phisher-Gmail will tell you that something may be amiss. There's a new "confidential mode" that makes it possible to set an expiry date on emails.
Tuning in to Record Store Day in Delco
Records are gaining in popularity as new releases - as well classic albums - are issued and re-issued on vinyl. That means there are a slew of special, limited-edition vinyl releases to be scored.
The web version of Gmail, even in its professional G Suite form, involves a lot of clicking into individual messages, which take your entire message window, then backing out to your inbox. And perhaps most interestingly, Google is ever so slightly implementing the beginning of an algorithmic inbox, with the new nudges feature. Google said that the new experience is available for businesses to start using today in the G Suite Early Adopter Programme, and can be turned on in the admin console.
Essentially, Gmail's confidential emails aren't regular emails. Do you think confidential messages are a welcome addition?
But, numerous new Gmail features revolve around getting you the information you need without having to click through to an individual email and open it up.
Google will also start rolling out phishing warnings within emails, displaying colored banners at the top of the email in red, yellow, or grey based on the perceived risk factor.
