Have You Heard About the New Gmail?

This summer, Google is releasing a sleek redesign of Gmail with some major improvements. These changes are intended to enhance productivity for Gmail users.

Here’s what you can look forward to in the new Gmail:
 

1. Easily view attachments. Looking for a specific attachment? See where it is at a glance and open it immediately, without opening or scrolling through long conversations.


2. Hit the snooze button. If you don’t have time to reply to an email right away, use the snooze button to put it off to a later time.

3. Access other apps. Get easy access to the apps you use often, like Google Calendar, Keep, and Tasks (now available on Android and iOS).



4. Use nudge.
The new nudge feature will show quick reminders next to your emails so you don’t forget to respond or follow up on messages.

5. Send a smart reply. Smart reply gives you options for a quick response so you can get back to work faster.

6. Get more done on the go. Gmail mobile can send you high-priority notifications when you get an important message so you don’t have to break your focus unless it’s urgent. Gmail will also suggest when to unsubscribe from newsletters or emails you no longer care about.



7. Stay safe with increased security.
New warnings in Gmail will alert you when you receive a potentially risky email.

8. Keep confidential messages confidential. The new confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, copy, download, or print messages. You can also protect sensitive information in your emails by creating expiration dates or revoking previously sent messages.
