Gmail Overhaul for your Personal Accounts
Two years in the making – Google has unveiled a new look for Gmail, closely resembling Microsoft Outlook. The new interface is focused on quick productivity actions, including features such as “suggested replies” and “nudges” to respond to forgotten emails. This is another indication that Google is building AI into its products. In addition, they have improved offline functionality – users will be able to search, write, respond, delete or archive up to 90 days of messages whilst offline. However, one of the most interesting advances that many users will welcome – is the ability to erase an email from both the sender and receiver’s email accounts after a set period of time. While the new features are intended to boost team productivity, it is currently only available to personal Gmail users.
