Google recently announced that an update of the functionality of the Gmail click menu will land in February 2019.
The Gmail shortcut menu is not particularly useful at this time since it only provides a handful of options. At the moment, the only available options are Delete, Archive, Mark as unread and go to the tab.
Gmail users must select emails and wait for other options to appear at the top of the screen to activate them. Often only actions used as a response or forwarding, postponement or label are used.
Google announced the change to the G Suite updates blog. The update will be implemented for all G Suite Gmail users and will be enabled by default. No news that it will also come for free Gmail users, but it seems likely to happen.
Gmail: improved shortcut menu
Gmail users who right click on an & # 39; e-mail can use the following features once the # 39; update has reached their account:
- Reply to the e-mail with the right button.
- Forward the e-mail.
- Postpones the e-mail.
- Turn off the conversation.
- Add a & # 39; tag.
- Move the email.
- Use the search to find emails from the contact.
- Use search to find emails with the subject.
- Open emails in new windows.
Gmail users can open the context menu by right-clicking the menu button on Windows keyboards or Ctrl-clicking on Mac OS X devices.
The rollout has already been started. Google plans to implement the change for all G Suite users until February 26, 2019. Many features for G Suite customers are also implemented for free users, and typically in a short period of time.
It is time for Google to make the right-click menu more useful on Gmail. The current options are not thought well in my opinion. Once the change lands, you can use actions often used as the answer directly from the list of e-mails; something that was not possible before using the user interface, if I'm not mistaken.
Now you : do you use the Gmail web interface?
