Search giant Google keeps on adding features to its various services that make them more useful for users. And now, according to reports that have surfaced online, the technology giant is testing some new inbox features like pinned messages, reminders and category bundles.
According to 9TO5Google, “a screenshot shared by a Redditor today (Saturday) claims to show an internal build of the revamped Gmail for Android with the new features.”
Last year in September, an addition of bundles was announced by Google to help users deal with multiple messages at one time. This is an organizational feature that was first introduced back in 2014 that gets similar emails together so that users can archive them in mass or expand it to go through them.
The report further said that if the screenshot shared on Reddit is reliable, the technology giant is working on reminders that users will be able to create and schedule quickly. In addition to this, the ability to only show pinned items in the feed will also be added.
To recall, in 2018 Google rolled out the revamped version of Gmail. Since the service has started, this was the biggest overall that it received and it added features like Smart Reply, Email Snoozing, Nudges that remind you to follow up with an email, Scheduling emails, and hover actions.
Among these, Smart Reply and Scheduling emails are two features that were awaited for since a very long time and most of the features that Google rolled out to Gmail last year have been appreciated by the masses.
The report that talks about the upcoming features, says that the Reddit user also mentioned that ‘there is still plenty of work to be done’. It also went on to say that the screenshot represents only one among the ‘different design iterations’ that was worked on and that it’s very early to talk in detail about these changes.
In an unrelated piece of news, Google has announced that it will now officially be closing down its social networking platform Google Plus on April 2 this year. All the profiles and pages on the social networking platform will be deleted on the same day, and because of this, Google has also shared information on how people can save their data before it’s gone forever.
