In the last two days, there has been a lot of new design changes, product launches and other stuff happening at Google. After Google+, Google Bar, Google Profile – then ext Google product to get a facelift is Gmail.
The official Gmail blog has posted a preview of what we will be seeing on Gmail in the coming few months. A brand new, cleaner interface that is as beautiful as powerful Gmail is.
A couple of years back, Gmail announced various tools to import your mail and contacts from other providers, like Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL etc.
They have increased the number of supported providers today by adding fourteen more international domains to their list of supported email providers:
Gmail has just added a bunch of new features, a slightly new look and full integration of Google Contacts in Gmail.
An overhauled version of Google Contacts have been added to Gmail today to make it much easier to sort and manage your contacts from within Gmail.
Few days back, there was news all over the internet about the rivalry between Apple and Google. But looking at the recent events, it doesnâ€™t look like they have anything hard against each other.
Google has announced an experimental version Gmail application for iPad and other tablet devices.
Google added a new feature, suspicious account activity, in Gmail which notifies the user if any suspicious login activity took place on his account.
The new feature when enabled will show an alert if they notice that something unusual is going on with your account.
You can easily import phone numbers of your Facebook contacts to Google Contacts with the help of a Greasemonkey script.
This could be useful for people using Google Sync to sync their Android devices or iPhone with Google Contacts and want their Facebook phone numbers too in the Contacts list.
Many people prefer Gmail notifications on their desktop and don’t like keeping a Gmail tab opened in their browser just to check emails. I agree.
Desktop notifications are much cleaner and you only open Gmail if you want to reply to an email. Google Talk also has Gmail notifications, but gain, that’s for people who also want to IM with their friends.
There are many applications available for Android devices in the Android Market, but not all are useful. One useful app that I found in the Market was SMS Backup.
SMS Backup is a free Android app that automatically backs up SMS messages from your Android phone to your Gmail account.
Gmail keeps on working on different features for its desktop version and for iPhone/Android versions.
Since the new and enhanced Gmail for iPhone and Android was released back in April, there has been tons of features added till now.
