As part of its celebration of Gmail’s fifteenth birthday, Google has announced a number of new features to be added to its flagship email service.
Among the planned changes, the most intriguing was the introduction of a new email scheduling feature.That’s right: Gmail users can now look forward to being able to schedule emails without having to use a third-party add-on, as had been done in the past.
This will probably be particularly useful for companies, as users can schedule an email to arrive during the recipient’s business hours in any time zone.
Interestingly, Google is also pitching this feature as part of the recent digital well-being” trend that has led all the major technology companies — including Google — to introduce features that support “switching off.”
Smart Compose too has been a popular addition to Gmail on desktop and until now was exclusive to Pixel devices. As of today, if you run Gmail on any other Android-powered smartphone than a Pixel, then you should be able to utilize the sentence finishing features. While the addition of Smart Compose is a welcome one, the ability to schedule emails in Gmail will no doubt be great for ensuring emails are ready to be sent ahead of time.
