Google's G Suite redesign draws on AI to kill email clutter

Google's G Suite redesign draws on AI to kill email clutter

A "snooze" button for emails "you just can't get to right now" is one of the new features Google has added to Gmail on the web after a major redesign it says will "help people be more productive at work".

Gmail has received a new look and a lot of changes as it was lacking behind several professional mailing platforms like Microsoft Outlook, Zoho etc. Google chose to give Gmail more professional look for which it has developed the new user interface and features for Gmail, the last time any such major changes were done in 2013.

A new Unsubscribe feature will intelligently ask you if you really want to keep getting emails from a mailing list you never read - which Google thinks will benefit 60 per cent of us. To get the update right now, Go to Settings (the cog wheel in the top right corner) and select Try the new Gmail. At first, paid Gmail customers will only get access to the new version at all if they've signed up for G Suite's early-access program, allowing them to check out new features before deploying them widely.

Click the lock icon at the bottom of an email to turn on Confidential Mode.

The new Gmail also offers a lot to users from a business and corporate perspective. And, you know, the receipts and appointment reminders and relatives.

Google is also introducing two-factor authentication for individual emails, which will require recipients to key in a passcode delivered by SMS before they can open a message. This feature will allow a user to send an email with restrictions such as an expiry, or limiting the option to forwards, copy download or print messages.

Google Tasks is a new mobile app released on Wednesday for both iPhone and Android.

I moved to a G Suite Gmail account over a year ago, migrating years worth of emails from a conventional email server.

We'll have to check out the functionality for ourselves to see how it works, but we're looking forward to one day being able to respond to a bunch of emails while offline on a flight, only to see them satisfyingly zoom away once you're connected to the internet again.

Google uses machine vision algorithms to scan all the emails in your inbox and determine if they are a risk. Email can be sent with an expiration date (kind of like a Snapchat message), and there are more options for revoking messages after they're sent. Some features are going live today, and others will arrive in the weeks to come.

Google has finally decided that Tasks deserves a dedicated app on mobile.

Anti-phishing enhancements. When Gmail thinks a message is suspicious, it will warn you via a enormous, billboard-like message that's impossible to ignore, rather than the more subtle alert it's used in the past.

On the web app, users can now see and click attachments without opening messages and can also hover over messages to RSVP to a meeting or archive a thread.

Other features include a setting for high-priority notifications, which alerts users to important messages keeping interruptions to a minimum.

In addition to a leak late last month, the Gmail on the web revamp confirmed the existence of Google Tasks.
