Sharing is caring!

Gmail is definitely a web app that packs a great deal of features that is, if you know how to put them to good use. If you want to find out how you can use Gmail’s best feature to your advantage, check out these tips and tricks down below.

Experience Google Hangouts

At the beginning, users had Gtalk but now the name has been changed to Hangouts. If you want to call a friend that is on an Android gizmo or on Google+, all you need to do is sign into Hangouts, look for the person you wish to cal and initiate the call by clicking on the phone icon or video camera one.

Undo Send

“Undo send” can be found if you head on to General tab and then click the” Enable Undo Send” feature. When you do this, you also have to choose a specific timer (you have between 5 and 30 seconds). Now, each time you send a message to someone, an undo link will appear right in the yellow colored box. If you click on it before it gets send, you can still edit the information.

Enable Canned responses

It can be annoying to type the same message over and over again, so the “Canned Responses” is the perfect solution to fix this re-typing mania. You just have to write a response email, then tap on the arrow symbol (right side of the message) and enable “Canned responses”. Save your message or add a previously saved one in the pop-up window.

Verifying your “Last account activity”

It’s a well known fact that Gmail can be simultaneously accessed from smartphones, PCs and so on. If you wish to make sure that no one has been using your account, you should head on to the inbox and look for the “Last account activity” prompt. Here you need to click on the “Details link” as this will show your account’s recent activity. You simply have to click on the knob to sign out sessions that might still be active by accident.

The Mute Button is pretty handy

If you’re sick and tired of one particular conversation in Gmail, the Mute button is there to help. Look for it in the More menu while leafing through the message thread, or you can click the M letter for the shortcut version. This is a simple and easy way to get ride of disturbing and unwanted messages.
