How to get the new Gmail right now

Gmail's getting a major update on desktop and mobile

In addition to a leak late last month, the Gmail on the web revamp confirmed the existence of Google Tasks.

Gmail has a Confidential mode: With this mode, you now have the ability to remove the option to forward, copy, download, or print the email you have sent.

Gmail on the Web gets "Smart Reply", automatically generated email replies, which have been available on mobile since past year and which now represent 10% of messages, Google says.

Gmail on web is also adding support for a new native offline mode that works a lot like the offline mode on Google Docs.

We knew a significant Gmail redesign was in the works, and that it was only a matter of time until Google made it available to Gmail users.

You need to go to the cog wheel in the top right corner of Gmail and select "Try the new Gmail" to enable these settings. Notwithstanding, the choice wasn't accessible for us right now, so the take-off is by all accounts slower than anticipated. Users can also perform simple tasks like deleting or snoozing a message or RSVPing to an event by hovering over the message. Since a very long time, there has been no update to the Gmail's UI or its related app.

For years Google has allowed you to click on a date and time in the body of an email you've received, and then add it to your own calendar. Now it is possible to specify the priority of the letter, in addition Gmail will start to suggest to unsubscribe from mailing lists, if you stopped to read them. Nudge feature reminds you to reply to an email in case of forgetting but it doesn't nudge for all the un-replied emails.

"High-priority notifications is a new setting that only notifies you of important messages, keeping interruptions to a minimum". Instead, he can access it at the right of the inbox. One of the big changes is the new confidential mode meant for making it easier to send sensitive information via email. To accomplish this, Gmail will be rolling out new 'Confidential' button which will be embedded in the Compose section while sending the emails. "'Nudges" is another new feature which accompanies this new Gmail upgrade.

The other new features will be familiar to anyone who has used Google Inbox, the company's more experimental email client. Similarly, it may ask if you want to follow up on a message you've sent that hasn't elicited a response. Google will surface contextual replies for emails that don't need much thought, allowing you to deal with a barrage of emails with little effort. It will push emails it identifies as important to the top of your inbox, but only three a day.

With phishing attacks, ransomware and impersonation attacks all serious threats organisations face, Google has also taken the opportunity to improve security.

Numerous new features come about as a result of the popularity of G Suite for businesses, with this update representing the first feature revamp since Google's apps became a serious alternative to Microsoft.
