New Gmail With Great New Features
Wednesday our Goggle mail has introduced new features to GMAIL.New features are here. Keeping data secure is our top priority, which is why last month, introduced new phishing protections to help address Business Email Compromise (BEC) threats or when someone impersonates an executive to get sensitive information. With these new protections, Gmail has helped block 99.9 percent of BEC attempts by warning users or automatically moving messages to spam for them.
- Email shortcuts
email conversation in your Gmail inbox will reveal shortcuts such as Archive, Delete, Mark as Read, and Snooze, right next to the preview. While the first three were already a part of Gmail’s functionality, Snooze is the latest addition and it allows you to put off emails that you cannot get to at the moment.
- “Nudge” you for replies
Gmail is also introducing an AI-powered “nudge” feature that will prompt users to follow up and respond to messages that haven’t been replied to. For instance, for received emails, Gmail will use text like “Received X days ago. Reply?”, and for sent emails, the mailing client will use text such as “Sent X days ago. Follow up?”
- Smart Reply
Gmail’s web interface has been rolled out in the New Gmail – almost a year after it came to the mobile version. This feature provides the user with contextual responses to reply to emails received. For instance, Gmail will detect when questions have been sent to your inbox and will offer responses in variations of Yes, No, or Maybe. These replies will vary depending on the context and history of messages
- Risk warnings
Gmail on the Web will now display a risk warning prompt when it detects an email received from a potentially suspicious source. The prompt will display warning text – “This message seems dangerous” and offer a ‘Delete Now’ button.
- Confidential Mode with 2-factor authentication
A new Confidential Mode, made possible due to Information Rights Management (IRM), has been added to Gmail. Available while composing an email, the mode provides senders with the option to prevent the recipient from forwarding, copying/ pasting, downloading, and printing the content in the email. This works even when mailing non-Gmail users, by sending a link instead of the actual email. When the sent mail is opened, the link will be fetched and displayed if you mailed another Gmail user, while other email users will only see the link; in both cases the security measures you set will be in force.
- Native offline mode
Gmail on web is also adding support for a new native offline mode that works a lot like the offline mode on Google Docs. Users can search, write, respond, delete, and archive up to 90 days worth of messages and work without interruption when Wi-Fi connectivity is unavailable. Offline mode will be helpful for areas with sketchy Internet connectivity or while on the go, helping users preserve their content. G Suite will get the feature in coming weeks.
- Features on mobile
On mobile, while not a design refresh, Gmail is getting a few functional features. High-priority notifications will help users get notified about important mail threads and email addresses without filtering through the lot. This will be yet another AI-based feature allowing Gmail to assign priority to important emails from work, family, and so on.
