Gmail New Updates:
Google. One of the most trusted product in the world now updated their most prestigious product. Gmail new updates are making a lot of difference from previous one. Updates from google will always make some sense.
Google is making official changes in Gmail which we all know through a leaked news and it was already trailed in iPhone for few users as a beta version and in few desktops as well. The New Gmail Update is rollout today, which is to say, not everyone will get it right away.
Don’t worry if you didn’t get it now. One day you will be able to access the new Gmail update because it is not easy to give an update to 1.4 Billion users at a time.
Now let’s get into the topic which is more interesting.
Jacob Bank, lead product manager for Gmail, says that: Google’s redesign was done with an eye on “making people safer and more productive.” which sounds like Business users will get more priorities and the good news is Google made it to all users of Gmail. That means, google treating us like Google’s Business Customers, which we all should proud of.
You can ask me what are the changes take place in new Google Updates, and was these updates are useful? Dude! It’s Google. Whatever the changes made by Google look great, fantastic and user-friendly. Because Google knows what we want.
There is an update from Google which you say “Wow that was amazing”. This time Google concentrated more on privacy and confidential emails. Confidential Mode is one of the biggest updates that Google giving to all of us in which you can send Mails confidentially to the other end user.
The Confidential mode was actually divided into two types in this Gmail new updates.
- Integrated Right Management (IRM)
- Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
1. Integrated Right Management (IRM):
Integrated Right Management is one of the most powerful tools in Confidential Mode. This business-Centric Future, allows you to block the forwarding, copying, Downloading or printing a particular mail which is available for all Gmail users. You can also make a message expire after a set period of time to help you stay in control of your information. In one of the surveys conducted by Google, there’s a wide range of circumstances where people accidentally or unwittingly share information with the wrong person. Google considered this seriously and made changes which are useful for all Gmail Users.
2. Two Factor Authentication(2FA):
Two Factor Authentication is second most powerful tools in Confidential Mode. This great feature allows you to request the authentication with a password received through text message before they are able to open the confidential Mail.
Let’s discuss Gmail New Updates:
You might notice the new warning in google that alerts you about risky emails that come through
Google notifies you high priority notification which you never want to miss and stay focused on it. Add on to this, Google suggests you unsubscribe the newsletters that you no longer care about.
It’s not all about it. We still have more jaw-dropping features to discuss.
The new look of Gmail was wow. No words to explain better than this. Gmail dressed up in new clothes and looks great and awesome. It was stitched perfectly and cool without damaging the old look. Have a look at Google’s new dress.
You can ask me “It looks so similar to the old one and you said it was newly dressed up. What’s special in it? Chill.!! I am not done yet.

#Quick Action on your Mails:
First Organise your Inbox. After updates to new Gmail Look. A popup box will notify you to set Organized Inbox of your Wish. It was divided into 3 Parts.
- Default View
- Comfortable View
- Compact View
Let’s have a pictorial representation of each View Box.
1. Default View:
2. Comfortable View:
3. Compact View:
Choose whatever you wish to have a viewport. In my Suggestion, the Default view is best to use compared to all others. Now you find interesting to use your new Gmail. It works nicely with a new Hover Menu on the message box. Email Snoozing is a very common feature among all the 3rd party services. On hover, you will get Archive, Delete, Mark as Unread and read, Snooze right away on the message box.
- Mark as unread or read
Gmail New Updates include Add-Ons feature which is bit interesting one where you can schedule your events. On the right of your inbox, click these icons:
- Calendar: Make your daily schedule and add events that are important to you.
- Keep: Take notes and create checklists.
- Tasks: Add to-dos and deadlines.
- Add-ons: Get extra Gmail tools to help manage your mail.
One of the major Gmail New Update which allows you to follow up and respond the messages with a quick reminder that appears next to the mail.
It’s pretty easy to read your emails but to respond to all emails that you got in a day may not be possible to respond each and everyone’s mail because of time taking process. Google made it easy with its new feature called “Smart Reply”. It was an old feature which we got this years ago. But, Google made it easy in Gmail new update. You can enjoy this update even on iOS too.
Gmail Looks a bit more like Outlook now:
You may ask me why you’re saying this? Trust me guys. I have been using Gmail and outlook regularly. Gmail new updates remind me outlook features. Outlook has always kept mail, Calendar, and task in the single app what exactly Google did it now.
Outlook has an easy interface to create a calendar appointment or find someone’s number in a directory. They made users stay within their app by creating the calendar information, contacts, and email within a single place instead of switching to other 3rd party apps. This is the main reason why I still use outlook and this is the reason why it reminds me outlook feature.
Google made it better to use Emails with its integration.
Google’s new sidebar in Gmail feels like a first big step towards the better integration of Calendar, Tasks, and contacts which make Google customers useful to schedule their programs or events. Business people will find more useful with this updates.
All these features are introduced by Google to make business people easy and to get more business from G-Suit. Compared to Ofice 365 from Microsoft, Google has fewer customers. Google having 4 Million Business people right now which was double a few years ago. this news was officially confirmed by Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai in one of the conferences. Whereas Ofice 365 managed to have 29.2 Million customers.
Google has a very tough competition from Microsoft. So now Google is planning to increase their G-Suit customers. In that process, they are making changes accordingly which attracts more business people.
Google has a major battle to fight on:
Microsoft is aiming to get two-thirds of its Office business customers over to the cloud over the next 15 months so Google has a major battle ahead for big business. It’s not that easy to increase G-Suit customers but Google does have some advantage over Microsoft.
1.4 Billion users using Gmails compared to 400 Million outlook.com Service. G-Suit dominates in education in the USA. Google has an obvious advantage of an Android platform which Microsoft doesn’t have. All these advantages can help Google to get more G-Suit Customers in near feature.
A battle between two big companies can obviously make good advantage to a large number of their customers. Google made Microsoft make changes forcefully in office 365 and outlook service. Google is now improving their own product Gmail and G-Suit to get more businesses.
Everyone win’s if there is a solid competition. The war between G-Suit and Office 365 (Google Vs Microsoft) is definitely getting a whole lot more interesting in coming future which will make us enjoy their updates in their respective products.
