Best new Gmail features 2018

Google’s most used Gmail has recently seen a number of changes. Gmail has a new look and new features have been added.  We will continue to look at the new Gmail features.

Mute Email Threats:

Gmail Mute Option

Mute facility for group messages was one of the unique features of the iPhone X model. Google currently has a similar feature in its email service. Gmail provides a simple way to mute a lot of emails in the email threads.

If you have created any group emails and you are not interested to see specific group based emails then you can mute those emails. Open the specified thread and click on the three points on the top. Click on the Mute option. When doing so, the email conversations will be muted and archived.

If you want to get familiar with group conversations after a while, you can view Gmail in All Mail. Then these conversations can be unmuted. You have to click on the Move to Inbox menu to unmute the conversation.

Send and Archive:
