Yesterday Google’s Gmail launched New compose email feature. Gmail interface will change its editorial messages. Rather than occupy the entire window, the new writing space appears in a pop-up similar to Gmail chat.
According to Google, the new editing interface is simpler and more efficient. This is partly true, when you write or reply to a new Gmail mail, you always have access to the main interface of Gmail. You can do a search, consult the mails in your inbox and display your different labels.
The new Gmail New Compose Email Feature is designed to let you focus on what’s important: your message. The controls are still there when you need them but get out of the way when you don’t. We’ve even added some new features like the ability to easily insert inline images and have more to come.
As per official Gmail blog :
We’re always trying to make Gmail faster and easier to use, so today we’re introducing a completely redesigned compose and reply experience that does just that. We’re rolling out a preview of the new compose and reply today. After we’ve added some finishing touches over the coming months, we’ll enable it for everyone.
This new approach will undoubtedly be useful, for example, when you need to refer to messages from another conversation. In addition, you can have several windows open simultaneously for writing. As I mentioned, the new edit window is similar to the chat service available in Gmail.
The new editing interface comes with some new features. For example, when you enter the name of the recipients of your messages, the system displays auto complete email address for not only your contacts, but also the photo associated with their profile. It is also possible to drag and drop contacts between CC and BCC fields.
Google has not integrated all the features of the new edit window. Thus, it is impossible to add emoticons, invitations to events and use standardized responses. Have you tried this Gmail’s new compose email feature? What do you think?
