Gmail gets Design Enhancements

11Nov06

Gmail LogoGoogle released 5 new features for Gmail, First up is a new Reply button replacing the previously clunky ‘more options’ button at the top of all messages. no more scrolling to the bottom of a long message to find the “Reply” link. Now there’s a Reply button right on top, along with a lot of other options under the little dropdown arrow.

Gmail's Design Enhancements

New MessagesSecond is a Embarassment-reducing new message notifications: Ever replied to a message only to find out that someone sent a better, smarter reply right before you? Now, if someone sends a reply while you’re in the middle of reading a conversation (or replying to it), you’ll get a notification that a new message has arrived. Click “update conversation” to see what you’ve missed.

Third is a new button to Forward All messages in a conversation, use the new “Forward all” link on the right if you want to forward the entire conversation instead of just one message.

Fourth is an offline chat feature. Now, if you’re chatting with a friend who goes offline, your friend will be able to see whatever you were typing the next time he or she goes online.

Last one is Get Gmail on your mobile phone. It’s new and it’s fast. To try it for yourself, point your phone to gmail.com/app.

Overall, good design improvements for Gmail users.
