Gmail for Web is getting a slew of new features that will make it easier for employees and businesses to rapidly compose and deliver emails to the right people. The majority of the improvements are to the Gmail for Web app’s email Composer. A new right-click menu to view a recipient’s full name and details, avatar chips for recipients, and new checks when adding people outside contacts and organisations are among the new features. New visual signs for adding a user as a recipient have also been added by the search giant. All Google Workspace, G Suite Basic, and Business customers will have access to the latest features.

Gmail Web New Features

In a blog post, Google announced the addition of new features to Gmail for Web. Users will be able to engage with their colleagues and stakeholders more easily and confidently as a result of the improvements, according to the company. Google has added a right-click menu among other changes. This allows users to examine a contact’s entire name and copy their email address. In addition, the user can now choose how a contact looks in an email to other recipients.

With the latest update, recipients’ avatar chips will attach to the recipients they add while drafting an email; making it easier to recognise who has been added. By hovering over recipient chips or choosing and using the keyboard shortcut Alt/Option + →, a Gmail Web user can access a user’s information card.

When corporate users email someone outside their organisation with whom they have previously corresponded, the contact name appears in yellow. However, when a new external contact is added as a recipient, it will be highlighted; along with an out-of-organization avatar and a warning banner.

There is also a feature that prevents recipients from duplication. When adding new recipients, the drop-down menu will grade-out any names that have previously been added; ensuring that the same name does not appear in several fields, such as To and CC. When shifting emails between the To, Cc, and Bcc fields, Google claims that Gmail will automatically eliminate duplicate entries within the same fields.

Finally, Gmail will now verify that email addresses are properly written; otherwise, these entries will not be converted into recipient chips. Additionally, Gmail will display an error notice warning the user to rectify the issue before sending the email.
