Gmail is a free email service with 1 billion active users and it’s available on both PCs and mobile devices. From time to time, its developers are adding new features, but we’ll mention only a few of them, that you’ll most likely use at some point, or maybe daily.
Undo Sent Messages
Many users accidentally send emails to wrong addresses or without checking for typos and they make a full of themselves. Google has introduced the option to undo a sent message, but you must move fast, as the cancellation period can be set to 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds. So, after sending the message, an Undo link will appear in a yellow box which will float at the top. Tap on it and you’ll be able to cancel the message and edit it, then send it again.
Get Paid Or Send Money
With Google Wallet, you are able to send and receive money from your friends. In order to send money to a person, click the dollar icon from the bottom of the message, after signing up for a Google Wallet account and enabling “Send money using Gmail” option. Also, make sure that you have enough money in your account.
Multiple Gmail Accounts
Gmail gives you the option to check not only your standard email address, but also a Google Apps account or any other Gmail account. You won’t need to open different browsers in order to use all of them, as you will sign into all of them on Google Chrome.
Moving Messages to Different Accounts
iOS users are allowed to sign into multiple Gmail accounts and when receiving a message on one of them, they can move it to another account or to an email that’s been set up on the system that uses iMAP. You will just select the folder where you’ll want to move the messages and everything happens instantly.
Outlook and other desktop email services offer a preview, and when clicking the message, it’s opened in another pane of the window. Gmail has Preview Pane and when you turn it on, you’ll see the drop down menu for it placed next to the Setting’s button. You can review message below the list (horizontal) or in the right side (vertical). If you don’t select any message, you will see how much space your messages are using out of 15GB – the free storage capacity.
