Gmail’s dynamic emails roll out to all users on July 2

Back in March, Google introduced Dynamic emails, which made electronic communication more interactive. Indeed, instead of being a mere messaging platform, it lets users interact with content without leaving their mailbox. This meant they could RSVP to events, respond to comments, and fill out forms without the need to open a new page. Although the feature has been available as a beta program a few months now, the company is officially releasing it to all Gmail and G Suite users.

Tech destroys the walls between our personal and work lives—I'm fighting to rebuild them

I am weirdly zealous about separating my work life from my personal life. My sanity, such as it is, depends upon not having anxieties about my job bleed into my home life, and keeping the chaos and distractions of my personal, family, and creative life from disrupting my work time. After over a decade of almost exclusively working from home, I’ve put a lot of thought and effort into how I can configure the various components of my Google-powered digital life in a way that is efficient and deliberate rather than stressful and schizophrenic.

But as more aspects of our lives become enveloped by the technological, the easier it is for the demands of our jobs to shove their way into our hours off the clock.

If you own a Samsung phone, you may have been confused by an email Google sent out today regarding the Samsung Email app. Users were told that the app, submitted by an "unverified developer," was granted access to their Google account and was authorized to "read, compose, send, and permanently delete" any message within their Gmail account.

Google updates Gmail widget with modern Material Design

Widgets, once one of the most appealing features of Android and now all but abandoned. A few years ago, an update to a widget, especially one from a Google app, would be noticed immediately and we would get dozens of tips about it in the span of a few hours. Nowadays hardly anyone uses widgets to even notice or care. So you may forgive us for not seeing this major change in the Gmail widget, which occurred toward the end of last month.

The good die young: Rest in Peace, Inbox by Gmail

We've had it a long time coming, and today is the day we finally have to bid farewell (the shutdown is rolling and starting to affect some users of both the site and the app): Inbox by Gmail reaches EOL. After announcing the death in September 2018, Google promised to bring over all the features we love about Inbox to Gmail. While that's true for snoozing, follow-ups (nudges), and Smart Replies, it's not the case for the differentiator between the two services: bundles. Let's take a look at what made Inbox so universally beloved, and stroll down memory lane to remember its way too short life.

Gmail adds scheduled emails and improves Smart Compose for its 15th birthday (Updated)

It's hard to believe that Gmail is fifteen years old today. In human years, that would equate to lots of sneaking around, unapproved driving, under-age drinking, and daily existential crisis about everything — i.e. normal teenage drama. But in Gmail years, this means we're getting some demure features. Namely, the email service finally lets us schedule emails.
