Big Changes Hit Gmail Today - Here's All The New Features

In addition to the new features for the web, Google is also rolling out some features for mobile as well such as high-priority notifications that will notify you of important messages.

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. A new panel on the right-hand side gives you quick access to pop-up versions of Google Calendar, the Keep note-taking app, and a new version of Google Tasks, as well as third-party services that use Gmail's add-on technology, such as Asana, Dialpad, and DocuSign. The savvy answer, which has been accessible on the mobile apps of Gmail for quite a while, also gets added to the new web variant.

The single biggest functional addition delivered by Google in the new update is "snoozing". However, if you're impatient then there's a way to get the update right now.

Extra-secure messages. A two-factor authentication feature for Confidential Mode messages, which you can enable on a per-message basis, will require your receipient to receive a code via text message and enter it before opening your missive.

Smart Replies - which debuted in Inbox by Gmail and will be making their way to more Android apps later this year - are also present in the new Gmail redesign.

To help people sort through the piles of email that make it through all the filters, Gmail is adding Nudging. High Priority Notifications, as the name suggests, uses intelligence (with a little guidance from you) to ensure you only get bing-bonged when there's something important to see. The first you'll likely notice is the ability to take actions on emails right from the Inbox itself. Finally, Google is expanding Smart Reply, which had previously only been available in mobile apps, to the Gmail web interface. After clicking on an icon that resembles a clock, you can set the expiration at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, or-you really want it to expire after such a long time?-5 years. "Confidential" mode also helps reduce the risk of private information being accidentally shared with the wrong people. 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. There is also an iOS app, but the App Store listing is not yet live as of publishing. Tasks actually has a bit of a connection to your emails since you can drag and drop emails into the sidebar to create new tasks. Gmail will also warn you if a mail is found to be potentially risky. While the firm says you can try it out now, it remains inaccessible to users in European regions as of time of posting.

Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat told analysts that half of the spending resulted from hardware purchases to support expanding use of machine learning, which describes automated programs that can, among other things, identify spam and predict which emails users would find most important.
