For the most part, Google does a pretty good job at sifting out unwanted emails, such as spam and phishing emails. However, this doesn’t mean that the system cannot be improved upon, which is why Google will soon start to test allowing brands to better authenticate their emails with logos within Gmail.
Google’s Gmail interface hasn’t really changed that much over the years. Its UI has undergone some redesigns to make it more modern, but for the most part, it is still largely the same. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it is a familiar interface, but that doesn’t mean it cannot be improved upon.
One of the features of the iPad is that it offers Split View multitasking. This means that users will be able to run apps side-by-side, but the onus also falls onto the developer of the app to ensure that it plays nicely with the feature as well. The good news for Gmail users is that it looks like Google has finally brought the feature to its iOS app.
When Google announced that they would eventually be ditching the Hangouts brand, they also announced a couple of new services that would act as replacements. One of those new services is known as Google Meet and was originally announced in 2017 as a service for Google’s enterprise G Suite customers.
Scam emails aren’t exactly new, and to Google’s credit, its Gmail platform has actually been doing a pretty good job at blocking most of them (if some are still slipping through, you can check out our guide on how to block emails on Gmail). However, with the coronavirus outbreak, it seems that there are more scam emails than ever.
Searching for emails in Gmail isn’t particularly hard to do, but the good news is that Google will be making things easier with a newly-introduced feature in the form of “search chips”, which will let users further refine their search results similar to how you would refine your searches made on Google.
So you just sent off an email and you haven’t heard back from the person for a few days. Are they busy? Are they ignoring you? If you’re curious as to whether or not an email has been read, here are some tips you can check out if you’d like to know if your email has been read.
Have you ever needed to quote an email to someone who might not have been part of the original thread? The only way you could do it is to forward them the original emails, or copy and paste it into the new email, but it’s not exactly the most elegant solution and people just end up with forwarded copies of emails.
In this day and age, there is a good chance that many of us own multiple email accounts. There could be an email account for work, one for personal, one for business, and so on. It also means that we don’t necessarily use the same email providers for all our emails, where you might use Gmail for personal, and a custom email address for your work or business.
Did you know that some emails might contain hidden images that are used to track you? If you want to stop that tracking, then here’s how to block images from loading in Gmail.
We’re sure that many of us have received emails that contain images in them. These types of emails are usually from companies who are advertising their products or services. However, did you know that sometimes emails that don’t look like they have images might actually contain “invisible” images that can be used to track you?
Dynamic emails were introduced in Gmail earlier this year in March. It evolved Gmail beyond a messaging platform by enabling users to interact with more content without having to exit their mailbox. For example, they could respond to comments, RSVP to events, fill out forms, and more. The feature was only available in beta for a few months but it’s going to be rolled out officially to all G Suite […]
We’ve all bought things online before, but it seems that even if you did not buy it directly from Google or through Google, the company seems to be pretty aware of the things that you’re buying online. This is thanks to the use of digital receipts which are usually sent to your email address. If you’re using Gmail, this is how the company is tracking you.
We know that many were bummed when Google announced that they would be shutting Inbox down. It was an excellent product that helped make emails a lot more organized and tidy, and so to this date, we still have no idea why the company shut it down. If you’re not a fan of Gmail’s interface, we have some good news for you.
