Google has introduced a bunch of new features in its email service, the Gmail. The most important feature among them include a confidential mode that introduces a Snapchat like vanishing message system.
The confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, copy, download or print messages—useful for when you have to send sensitive information via email like a tax return. You can also make a message expire after a set period of time to help you stay in control of your information, explained Google in a blog post.
Now on Gmail click on attachments—like photos—without opening or scrolling through large conversations, use the new snooze button to put off emails that you just can’t get to right now or easily access other apps you use often, like Google Calendar, Tasks (now available on Android and iOS) and Keep.
Another new feature in Gmail include “nudge” that allows one to follow up and respond to messages with quick reminders that appear next to your email messages to help make sure nothing slips through the cracks.
A Smart Reply fature has been introduced to help users reply to messages faster. Gmail will now alert you about risky messages.
For mobile version, a high-priority notifications feature has been introduced that can notify you of important messages to help you stay focused without interruption. Plus, Gmail will start suggesting when to unsubscribe from newsletters or offers you no longer care about.
