Coming Soon: the new Gmail

Switch to New Gmail.gif

Google has announced that their new and improved Gmail will start launching in July, hosting a range of new Inbox features, like:

  • Snooze: adds a timer for a message to pop back up later
  • Preview: view attachments (i.e., docs, jpgs) from within the message list
  • Side-Bar: quick access to Google apps (e.g., Calendar, Keep) and 3rd-party Add-ins

 

In addition, Compose also gets a few new tools:

  • Smart Compose, an IA (intelligent assistant) for sentence completion.
  • Confidential Mode, limits recipient’s print and forward options
  • Message Delete, automatically destroys message after a set time.

But Why Wait?

The new interface becomes  standard in July, with the Google’s customary Opt-in or postpone option. Users who can’t wait can opt-in right now.

To Switch to the new Gmail:

  1. Click the Settings Gear googlesettingsgear at right
  2. Select  Try the Gmail

Cheers!
