Google brings new Tasks app to iPhone and iPad

Gmail's'confidential mode lets you set expiration dates on emails Gmail's'confidential mode lets you set expiration dates

In Mobile Gmail, High-priority notifications shall move the most needed sender mails to the top and Gmail also asks for unsubscription to repeated emails if users don't respond for a long time. Here's what you need to know.

Google shares ended in negative territory in the US Tuesday, ahead of the tech giant's major Gmail update.

Firstly, a snooze button lets you postpone emails that users don't have time to reply to immediately, allowing users to set a time to send that email back to the top of their unreads. Users also have the option to stop recipients from forwarding, copying, downloading or even printing out a message you've sent them. It also works closely alongside Google Calendar and Gmail to make managing your most important projects as easy as possible. And if you're keen on trying it out, you can do so right now. You can add tasks, reorder them, tack on sub-tasks, assign dates to everything you have to do. In addition to that, it will also let you secure emails by enabling password protection which will be automatically generated through SMS. The panel allows you to copy or paste content from Gmail into other apps, or just quickly jot down a note or add a task. This feature as well was previously available on Inbox and most of the third-party clients. As usual, you'll be able to switch back and forth at first. Google launched a security center for G Suite in January, providing analytics to identify potential threats as well as best practices users can take to guard themselves against attacks. The app will surface attachments and files in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides right below the subject line while you're scanning your inbox, folders and search results, so you don't need to dig through all the messages in a thread to find what you're looking for. These are usually short texts like "See you soon" or "Thanks for the reply". There's no way to get to it when you're actually reading an email. Surely with this new upgradation to the Gmail platform, Google is taking things farther up the quality spectrum this time.

Gmail is also getting smarter, particularly in its companion mobile apps. Google redesigned Gmail's security warnings to more prominently label potential phishing traps or other high-risk emails, a welcome addition especially given Gmail's recent scam issues.

Tasks is another productivity booster being rolled out on the web and on brand new mobile apps. Google is also going to heavily leverage AI capabilities using Tensor processing chips which will enable smart-assistant features such as "suggested replies" to messages and "nudges" to remind recipients about unread important emails. This includes the ability to snooze emails, access GSuite apps easily and nudge people to follow up on emails.

When you open an email, you'll see Smart Reply options - another feature that Gmail app users will be familiar with.

Product manager lead for Gmail, Jacob Bank, described the changes as "an entire rewrite of our flagship, most-used product". It's also not a huge surprise that Google is bringing some features from Inbox over to Gmail.
