Google Tasks App Launched Today Gets Integrated With Gmail

Share

Notified as the biggest update of Gmail, changes were done in font style, look, adding new features such as Confidential mode, snooze button, nudging and smart replying thus providing a user friendly interface in both web and mobile.

Not all features will be available at launch.

The update adds new side panel icons that bring improved integration with other G Suite apps: Google Calendar, Google Keep, and to-do list application Google Tasks.

If you're ready to get started with the new Gmail, you can start today on Gmail Business accounts if you're part of the G Suite Early Adopter Program. Some new tools and features coming to Gmail make it easier to do things right from the inbox view, saving countless clicks in the process.

There will also be a new native offline mode - no Chrome plugins required.

Have you got the new Gmail? If a message is locked, it needs to be authenticated either by granting access or using additional two-factor authentication via SMS. Users also have the option to stop recipients from forwarding, copying, downloading or even printing out a message you've sent them. Instead, it focuses on features that make email more safe and efficient, especially in a business context.

Another change on the UI front has to do with attachments - you'll see thumbnails for the attachments under the mail, allowing you to open an attachment without having to load the message itself. This means that - to use the completely relatable example that silicon valley executives always use - you can write responses to your emails while on a flight, and then sync your inbox and send 'em once you're on the ground.

The new setting does not override corporate email retention policies or present new obstacles to law enforcement. "Confidential" mode also helps reduce the risk of private information being accidentally shared with the wrong people. Some of the new features leaked ahead of time, but the new look hasn't actually been available for people to try out for themselves until now. Gmail's AI will also suggest when to unsubscribe from newsletters and other lists they don't interact with often. Now it's official. Google Tasks has been completely overhauled and is now unrecognizable from the hardly-used husk of a Gmail add-on it has been up to now. As you can probably guess from the name, the tool will help users who want to be extra cautious about how their emails are accessed.

It's worth pointing out that many standard Gmail features aren't going anywhere.

One of the biggest changes to Gmail is a new Confidential mode, which is created to make Gmail more secure and prevent loss of sensitive information through hijacking of accounts. The mobile app has also received updates.

You can set a message to expire in 1 day to 5 years, and require the recipient to enter a passcode texted to their phone before they can read it. All you have to do is type the + sign and start typing until you see the contact information for the person you're looking for.
