If you are the kind of person who would love to have the last word on anything and everything, then surely you would fall in love with what Google has done with Gmail – by introducing Mic Drop. In other words, Mic Drop would allow you to reply to just about any email using the new ‘Send + Mic Drop’ button. Everyone will receive your message, and even if the recipients would want to reply, you won’t see the reply.
Whenever the mic is dropped, your email will be accompanied by an explanatory image so that expectations can be tempered by the receivers. So far, those who have tested out Gmail Mic Drop for the past few months have nothing but good things to say about it, including “Sending email is so much easier when you don’t have to worry about people responding!”, “Mic Drop is a huge improvement over Mute! I can finally let everyone know I’m just not interested.”, and “My team solves problems so much faster with Mic Drop. In fact, we stopped talking to each other entirely!”
Gmail Mic Drop will roll out for the web version of Gmail first, and as with Google, you can expect mobile updates to arrive in due time, now how about that? It is always nice to see Google introduce more and more features into Gmail, such as scanning images to prevent confidential leaks. [Press Release]
