Leaked Gmail redesign outs plans to integrate Docs, Chat, and Meet

Google has only recently announced that it was integrating its video-conferencing service Meet with the Gmail app, a move that was met with some criticism. As it turns out, the introduction of the Meet tab was only the beginning of a transformation. Developer Tahin Rahman found slides from Google's upcoming Cloud Next '20 event that show how the company is looking to turn the Gmail app and website into a one-stop productivity hub, with Meet, Chat, Docs, and Rooms built right into the service.

How to track (nearly) every piece of mail coming to your door

As anecdotal evidence of mail theft grows in the US in recent weeks, we're all probably being a little more careful about collecting our mail in a timely manner as we await for important things to arrive, like an envelope from the IRS (the agency sending out Economic Impact Payments). And while the IRS isn't making any sort of direct mail tracking of stimulus checks available, you can at least get a heads up on the day your check will arrive using this handy tool from USPS. It's not infallible, and it won't get every single letter, but it's about the only way you can get any sort of advanced knowledge your check will be hitting your mailbox soon.

Edison Mail’s new Inbox-like assistant will remind you of upcoming bills, trips, and events

When it came out in 2017, EasilyDo was an Inbox alternative for non-Gmail users, before changing its name to Edison Mail a few months later. It offered advanced features such as Smart Replies, which most emails clients didn't have back then. The app is now becoming even smarter, as it's getting a built-in smart assistant.

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.

Popular email client Spark comes to Android, hoping to comfort forsaken Inbox users

By killing Inbox, Google is leaving many users without a comparable fallback solution, even though it's arguing Gmail has the same features as the defunct client. Readdle is using this as an opportunity to bring Spark, its popular email client, to Android with hopes it will fill the gap left by Inbox's demise.

I've been using Spark on my Mac for a while, and I'm very pleased with the way it combines advanced functionalities with an intuitive interface, and how it's designed to improve productivity. I've spent some time with its Android counterpart, and here's my take on what it brings, what it lacks, and whether you should consider it to replace Inbox — or your current email client.

Essential just brought Newton Mail back from the dead, back to old $50/year pricing

In somewhat of a strange move, phone manufacturing startup Essential purchased CloudMagic in December of last year. CloudMagic's primary product was Newton Mail, a cross-platform mail application that cost $50/year to use, which shut down last August. Now it seems Essential has revived Newton Mail, as the service is once again online and functional.

[The Android Police Files #16] Please stop following me i do not do anything wrong to your devices or stalk and harrass unsuspecting people

Seven months have passed since we published the last installment of the AP Files. In that time, the Android world has seen some pretty interesting additions. Way too many flagships, including the latest from ASUS, Huawei, LG, and OnePlus, are being leaked/revealed with notches (thanks, Apple). Android P made its debut in developer preview form, and it looks like Google may be adding gesture navigation as well. LG unveiled the successor to the V30, the nicely-named V30S ThinQ, which is just a V30 with more RAM and some AI features you'll play with once and never touch again.

[The Android Police Files #15] AVAST INSTALLATION ERROR , AVAST TECHNICAL HELP , AVAST SUPPORT PHONE NUMBER

Welcome back to the Android Police Files, your #1 source for the brilliant stuff that the AP staff receives in our mailboxes. Since we last convened, a lot has happened. The latest version of Android shares a name with a branded product for the first time since 4.4 KitKat. The Galaxy Note8 was released, and it doesn't catch fire. And most recently, a Canadian 17-year old and his "youth leadership coach" tried to pass a Chinese ODM's phone off as their own and crowdsource it on Indiegogo.

There will always be new things going on in the world, but there's one thing that we know will never change: crazy people sending us crazy messages.

It's been over half a year since the last installment of the AP Files was published, and the world has undergone some drastic changes. There's a squeezable phoneBezel-less phones now dominate the world. And the newest LG phones haven't had any major reports of bootlooping. I'm sorry, I had to.

Six months is indeed quite a long time, and it's definitely enough time for us to have received some more... let's call them interesting letters in our mailboxes.
