Google Is Giving Gmail a Makeover

To help people sort through the piles of email that make it through all the filters, Gmail is adding Nudging. If the crux of an email is simply filler to get you to read an attachment, you can bypass all that and jump straight in. Well, it looks like that time has come and the brand new Gmail features are available to some users.

Aside from the new-look web app and Tasks mobile apps, Google also announced new security features, including Gmail confidential mode, and expanded AI capabilities like smart replies and notification priority settings. Notwithstanding, the choice wasn't accessible for us right now, so the take-off is by all accounts slower than anticipated.

For example, users will now be able to hover over an email subject line to RSVP to an invite, archive a message or set a snooze alarm.

Yes, bizarrely, even though Gmail has included Tasks from the outset, this marks the first time it has had its own app.

To start clearing out some of that inbox clutter, Gmail will now recommend mailing lists to unsubscribe from, based on how often you get these mass mailings versus how often you actually read them.

Integrated rights management takes this control of messages a step further by preventing a recipient from being able to block the forwarding, copying, downloading or printing of certain messages.

If you've followed along with the leaks in recent weeks, none of the new features will surprise you. You can edit and even add new events right from the inbox.

Google Is Giving Gmail a Makeover

Google is hoping that the new additions like confidential mode and 2FA on a per-message basis will cut down a hacker's ability to access sensitive information, particularly at large organizations.

Gmail brings improved features is Redesigned security notifications.

A new "offline mode" lets you prepare messages to be sent while you're not connected to the internet, and it will send them once you get back online.

With Smart Replies, Google includes three crude guesses at how you might want to answer someone's message.

The more subtle aspect of Gmail's redesign is on the intelligence side. The new ability to Snooze a message temporarily removes it from the inbox and drops it back in, at the top of the list, at a specific time.

It's all pretty clever then - and while Google admits it still won't make your emails completely bulletproof (there's nothing to stop you literally taking a photo of your screen with your phone), it will reduce opportunities for crimes of convenience. The blog post does say that nudging is an AI-powered feature, so it's possible that Gmail considers the importance of the sender or the timeliness of the message before it puts up the alert. For business users, the G Suite admin will have to enable these new features by enrolling in the G Suite Early Adopter Program. The new web version of Gmail has been created to look a lot more like the mobile app versions, as Google looks to adopt a consistent design language across platforms.
