New Delhi: This year it looks like Google has some planned interesting activities for Gmail users. The firm says that it will soon be launching out three new Gmail features. These features will help the users in correcting mistakes and edit at the time of composing an email. While two of the features will be available in the form of shortcut buttons, the third one allows the users to download messages in a different format from Gmail on the web.
Google to launch three new features for Gmail users
Shortcut to Undo/Redo in Compose Window
Shortcut to Strikethrough Text
Gmail users will now be able to Strikethrough text in addition to Bold, Italics and Underline. This functionality is critical to quickly and efficiently write emails, especially when someone wants to visually indicate a change in language.
The feature is available along with others under the formatting section at the time of composing the email.
Option to download messages as .EML files in rfc822 format from Gmail on the web
The .EML format was something supported by other email clients and allows you to view the Gmail message along with attachments on these clients. Along with this functionality, users can now add these downloaded messages as attachments in their emails.
The G Suit blog post told that the feature will be available within new few days. Also, all these features will be enabled by default.
On a related note, last year in September Google announced that it’s shuttering off its Inbox by Gmail platform four years after the launch. The firm told that this will bring more focus to Gmail. “As we look to the future, we want to take a more focused approach that will help us bring the best email experience to the users. As a result, we’re planning to focus solely on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail by the end of March 2019.”
