"We want to make it easier to respect everyone's digital well-being", Google's blog post reads, "so we're adding a new feature to Gmail that allows you to choose when an email should be sent".

Other than this, Gmail will let its users schedule emails in advance which will help in not intruding someone's "off time" from work and sends the email in another time zones working hours. This means you can schedule an email to send it at a later date and time. Google is also bringing the Smart Compose feature, which predictively finishes words and sentences, to Android devices.

Google had rolled out a big redesign of Gmail in 2018 and added several new features, including Smart Reply, email snoozing, follow-up Nudges and hover actions, as well as the inline attachments and images on Android.

"Smart Compose is also getting, well, smarter".

Google has a habit of killing apps and services, and the latest victim of its killing spree is the much loved "Inbox by Gmail" app that brought along a bunch of really useful and incredible features, making inbox management a breeze for users. This means you don't have to forward emails to share information with people.

March Madness: Auburn Okeke has torn ACL, to miss rest of tournament
Auburn could have won the game in regulation, but Horace Spencer missed a hard three-point shot on the final possession. Kentucky led by as many as 13 points early in the second half but fell into a funk on the offensive end of the floor.

First up is a renovation of its Smart Compose feature, a tool used to speed up email composition for an increasingly mobile workforce. If you're using the Gmail app, double check for any pending updates waiting to be installed. Users simply write a message, then hit the "Schedule" button to ensure it arrives at exactly the right time.

Google in January released a new interface design for the mobile version of Gmail that includes new visual implementations, as well as feature additions.

"This makes it easier to stay focused on the task at hand since you won't have to open a new tab or leave your inbox".

One of the risks of heavily relying on Smart Compose is sounding like a robot wrote your email. If you have been waiting for Spark Mail before making a switch, the time has now come.

The Gmail team has been hard at work porting features from the alternative client to their own app. And to celebrate that birthday, the company has some new features planned for its popular email platform.
