Gmail plans to launch its new e-mail in about two weeks. One of the main features some users may appreciate is the automatic labeling feature. However, will it better than other auto-label software?
Otherwise, how would anyone find their messages? It seems that for every advantage there are almost as many possible glitches. This new interface planned by Google is still in the testing phases.
This could save users who receive numerous messages daily time otherwise spent trying to sort their incoming mail. The proposed design also seems to be very attractive-looking, and the categories seem to make sense.
For instance, social chats will go in the “Social” label, while very important mail would enter the “Primary” box. An “Update” tab also will be present, and users can also create their own labels.
Overall, this could help Gmail users organize all their messages much faster than in the past. Furthermore, it also could help them respond to other people including business clients much faster.
After all, they can clearly see from whom the e-mail is coming—even if the inbox is flooded. This form of messaging that Google plans to release also can make social communication much easier. Users more than likely will find keeping up with their friends less of a hassle.
Some Possible Glitches
In a perfect world, Gmail will know exactly what mail is important. However, this mail server could possibly mix up the messages and accidentally put them in places where they don't belong. This entire plan is not necessarily foolproof—or is it? Some users think the new sorting idea is as great as the old “priority” sorter.
However, spammers always seem to catch up with ways to send their messages to the top. Then, all the e-mail a person gets seems to be “Primary” when really most of it could still end up being total trash.
How to Make the Most of Gmail
Anyone who wants to make the most out of Gmail can use the calendar to add events right from the mail box. Furthermore, users can add their own images and customize their backgrounds.
Additionally, users can send files too large for e-mail via Google Drive (formerly known as Google Docs. They also can add multiple inboxes and can conduct advanced search queries.
Although recent reports don't talk about it much, one can hopefully assume that Google will also put a way the spam mail in an entirely separate label from the rest.
The Anticipation of the New Gmail Release
Gmail users will still have to be patient. Google plans to update inboxes over the course of the next two to three weeks. For anyone that doesn't like the new inbox, they can return to the older one with just a click of a link.
More than likely future updates are going to be necessary come time to reap the benefits of this new Gmail. After all, it is so new. However, it should be a step in the right direction. It is intended to make messaging easier for both iOS and Android users.
