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.
Sending emails hasn’t changed much in the last decade or so. Yes, the user interface has gotten better and we have more features but the basic stuff remains the same. Despite all the newness security is still one of the main concerns we have while using email. Gmail has decided to tackle this issue with the help of Gmail Confidential mode.
Google’s Gmail platform has a pretty good spam filter and for the most part, it gets the job done. However, if you want to block certain emails, here’s how you can go about doing it.
Have you ever wanted to schedule your email to send later? Perhaps you anticipate that you will be traveling and need to send out an email at a specific date or time, and you know won’t have an internet connection.

Given that our mobile devices are largely touch-based, sometimes being able to interact with them using gestures could be a smarter way than just tapping on our screens. That’s what Google seems to be exploring because in an update made to Gmail on iOS, Google has introduced new customizable swipe gestures.
Several years ago, Google introduced Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) to the internet. The concept behind it is that when certain websites use AMP, it will load almost instantly on mobile devices, versus regular non-AMP websites that will still take a couple of seconds to load. This is similar to Facebook’s own Instant Articles feature.
The wonderful thing about apps such as IFTTT is that it allows users to automate certain aspects of their smartphone. Previously the app had worked with Gmail where users could use a variety of recipes with the app, but unfortunately due to changes Google made to their API ecosystem, it has resulted in a few Gmail related recipes being broken.
Recently Google had confirmed that Inbox by Gmail will be shutting down on the 2nd of April, around two weeks from now. It seems that Google is now working to try and remove all traces of the platform’s existence from the internet, or at least as much as possible because according to reports, users can no longer find the app in the Play Store.
