Gmail gets message scheduling feature for its 15th birthday

After being introduced as part of Google's G Suite back in 2004, Gmail has now progressed to become one of the most dominant email platforms on the market. The feature allows you to send an email next morning, next afternoon, on a certain day, or you can simply pick the exact date and time you want to send the email.

Google announced that it has increased the size of attachments you can receive through Gmail, with the maximum size raised from 25MB to 50MB.

Though with 15 years in the books, it's probably safe to say that unlike Inbox, Gmail won't find it's way onto the list of things killed by Google anytime soon.

"It will personalize suggestions for you, so if you prefer saying "Ahoy", or "Ello, mate" in your greetings, Smart Compose will suggest just that". Users can take actions like respond to a comment thread in Google Docs, schedule a meeting, or fill out a questionnaire from the email itself. This means you don't have to forward emails to share information with people.

"Today, as we celebrate 15 years of innovation in Gmail, we're excited to announce new features that promise to bring even greater efficiency and assistance". In celebration of Gmail's anniversary, Google is rolling out enhancements to Smart Compose that will make writing emails faster.

Another feature making its way to Gmail is Email Scheduling.

Gmail has also recently added other features once unique to extensions like Boomerang, including the ability to snooze conversations or set up automatic follow-up reminders, though Boomerang still has useful additions like the ability to pause your inbox or incorporate message tracking. "It can also suggest a subject line based on the email you've written", states the blog post. If you're using the Gmail app, double check for any pending updates waiting to be installed. If you work in a team that's spread across multiple timezones, this feature is going to be a boon for you. Some of these features were first tested in the now-dead Google Inbox which was the feature-testing mail service for Gmail.

Spark is more than a basic email app, instead offering features that enable professionals to organize and schedule their conversations.
