Gmail update brings ability to schedule emails, improved Smart Compose

02 April 2019 4

Gmail is now a 15 years old email service and celebrates its birthday on April 1st aka April Fool's Day. To mark the occasion, Google has updated Gmail with one of the most commonly requested features during all these years. It is the ability to schedule emails for sending them at a later time or date. The update also brings improvements to Smart Compose functionality.

The email scheduler feature on Gmail is available via the web as well as smartphones. On the web, it can be accessed by clicking the arrow icon next to the Send button. On smartphones, it is available via the three dot icon on the top right corner while composing a new email. Once selected, it allows users to choose from preset scheduling times but there is also the ability to set date and time manually.

It is undoubtedly a handy addition, especially because of it being the native support. Prior to this change, users had to rely on third-party extensions to schedule emails. The in-built support will certainly make things a lot faster and more convenient.

Additionally, Gmail's 'Smart Compose' feature has received improvements. The exact nature of these improvements is unknown but these are said to make suggestions more personal for each user. It seems like suggestions will now be more in line with the way a particular user communicates.
