Google sure had a lot to share during their I/O keynote yesterday that covered Google Maps, Google+, a new Samsung Galaxy S4, and a newly launched game service, Google Play Games. Even though Google had taken our attention for over three hours yesterday, they still had more to announce, especially in regards to its Gmail service, which now has the ability to send money directly from within emails. It looks as though that wasn’t the only bit of news the company had for its Gmail service as they also rolled out a pretty neat feature that could help its users save a lot of time.
Google launched a number of quick action buttons for Gmail that allows users to not only RSVP for an event without ever opening the original e-mail invite, but it’s also now possible to rate restaurants, shops or any other place directly from their inbox. That’s not all for the quick action buttons as you’ll also be able to save flight information received in an e-mail, which Google makes its information a top priority as they display all of the travel information regarding their itinerary at the top of the Gmail screen.
The new quick action buttons will start rolling out over the coming weeks with a possibility of having more buttons added in the future. Hopefully this new feature will help keep your life a little bit more organized.
