Gmail comes with lots of features & many features are present but most users are not aware of that features. So in this article, I will tell you Top Hidden Gmail Features That You Must Know About.
Top Hidden Gmail Features
The Starred messages feature is already really handy, but you can make it even better. In Settings, scroll down to the Stars section and choose which color you want to use – you can switch the default golden one for orange, red, purple, blue or green. In fact, you don’t need to use a star at all. Boxes with icons are also available, and you can have lots of them in use at once. It may seem like little more than visual fun, but you can actually make your life easier by using different colors or icons for different types of message, as you can search for each of them individually.
You can reply to messages quickly by selecting one of three “smart reply” options Gmail offers. It uses machine learning technology to formulate them, to ensure they’re applicable to the message you’re responding to and sound like something you’d write.
Add other accounts
If you use Gmail and other email providers, like Yahoo, Exchange, and Outlook, you can make your life easier by managing all of your messages from one place. In the app, tap the menu button, add an account by hitting the down arrow and pick the type of account you want to add.
Gmail automatically sorts your messages into distinct categories, including Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums. However, you can hide the ones you don’t need by going to Settings, hitting the Labels tab and scrolling down to Categories.
Labs is a testing ground for a number of experimental Gmail features that aren’t quite ready to be rolled out properly. Most of them are really useful, and it’s worth checking them out and enabling the ones you like by going to Settings and hitting the Labs tab. At the time of writing, one of them shows you how many unread messages you have in the Gmail tab on your browser, and another lets you add handy shortcut buttons. The catch is that they can disappear at any moment.
