As I was replying my mails, I noticed that there are some changes in the interface. Google had just launched 5 new features on Gmail. You might even not notice the changes as they were hardly noticeable.
Firstly, its the new top reply button. No more scrolling to the bottom of a long message to find the â€œReplyâ€ link. Now there’s a Reply button right on top, along with a lot of other options under the little dropdown arrow. Hmm.. What’s the difference between Report phishing and Report Spam then?
Embarassment-reducing new message notifications
Ever replied to a message only to find out that someone sent a better, smarter reply right before you? Now, if someone sends a reply while you’re in the middle of reading a conversation (or replying to it), you’ll get a notification that a new message has arrived. Click “update conversation” to see what youâ€™ve missed. You can actually view updates that occurred without refreshing the site. (that’s what Gmail does right?)
When viewing a conversation, use the new â€œForward allâ€ link on the right if you want to forward the entire conversation instead of just one message. Personally I don’t think this is useful but who knows? You might use this sometimes.
Chat even when your friends are offline
Chatting in Gmail just keeps getting better. Now, if you’re chatting with a friend who goes offline, your friend will be able to see whatever you were typing the next time he or she goes online.
And lastly, its the Gmail mobile phone service. Just point your phone to gmail.com/app to try it on your phone.
