Today, I’ve found out that sending an attachment which is larger than 25MB or so won’t be possible through Gmail email. Luckily, Gmail email service is intertwining with Google’s other web applications such as Google Drive, and through Google Drive I’m able to send attachment which is larger than 25MB. Don’t know if it’s true or not, you can basically tell Gmail email to insert an attachment through Google Drive that is large as a decent video file size. Isn’t it cool?
By now, you probably are using Gmail‘s new look already, but if you haven’t yet, then read on.
Gmail is exciting again! Google has revamped Gmail to make email gorgeous. Gorgeous new themes, improved search, improved conversation interface, and nicer default layout are waiting for you to activate when you log into your Gmail account. I’m not sure if this is the manifesto for one to activate the new look of Gmail, but I had to look at the bottom most right corner to see a tiny link which led me to the activation of the new Gmail look. Then came the whole bunch of new features to put a smile on me.
The new look of Gmail is cleaner and nicer, but I cannot get comfortable with the comfortable layout which was activated by default. Instead, I choose to be with compact layout which is selectable under Settings. Settings represents by a gear looking icon near the topmost right corner. It may be that I have had gotten used to the old Gmail look for so long that now it just feels comfortable for me to use the compact layout.
One thing isn’t change is the annoying ads on the righthand side. It just makes Gmail looks ugly! Well, Google has to make money somehow, and I don’t blame them for having ads on the righthand side. Sometimes, it’s better to have the cake and not to be able to eat it. This is one of the case, and I’m not complaining! I’m just saying!
Sure, there are couple new HD themes I think, but I still feel Google has not rolled out enough themes! I love to see Google rolls out a lot more themes so I won’t be bored by looking at few themes over and over again. I think themes are just as important as everything else within Gmail. Themes can morph to fit my mood of the day!
Don’t you hate your email’s Inbox greets you with tons of unimportant messages such as spam emails? It’s an old story, but it’s a prevalent one which you wish there is a simpler solution to it. The folks at Google is planning to roll out something known as Priority Inbox for Gmail, and this feature attempts to unclutter your Gmail’s Inbox.
You can compare this new feature to the most primitive artificial intelligence! Why? Priority Inbox is like an assistant to you as it sorts out the emails it thinks you want to read, and it stuffs the unimportant emails into the everything else category. Something that you think you should read later, Priority Inbox stuffs such emails into the category where all emails would be starred. The more you use the Priority Inbox, the more it learns of your behavior in categorizing which email is important. In a sense, Priority Inbox can only get better at helping you out in sorting the email messages in your Gmail account.
Google says it won’t roll out Priority Inbox for Gmail users till next week! Google has some more testing to do for the feature needs to be better than now as it rolls out for the mass. Check out the video below to see what is Priority Inbox in a fun way!
