Gmail for iPhone updated with Snooze Feature and Ability to Send Money

Gmail with Smart Compose evolves as you email messages, learning from what you do, giving you suggestions based on what it's learned. As for Google Photos, a new feature called Suggested Actions helps give contextual shortcut actions to users based on their activity on the app.

What do you think about the new smart compose feature? If the recipient is using a non-Gmail client, they can click on the link to access a Gmail-hosted portal, where they can see the confidential content.

Smart Compose helps Gmail write emails "quickly with confidence", as a Google blog entry puts it, by making suggestions for the rest of the sentence as you write. Gmail will automatically begin to offer suggestions for words and phrases you might be starting. "For example, if it's Friday it may suggest Have a great weekend! as a closing phrase", stated the company. Google CEO Sundar Pichai joked during the demo that this new feature has caused him to write a lot more emails to employees.

Either way, Smart Compose will appear in the new Gmail for consumers over the next few weeks, and arrive to business G Suite customers in the coming months. It's useful for moving less important stuff to when you have time to deal with it and for getting to the much coveted 'inbox zero'. If you're in the dead of winter, Smart Compose might suggest "stay warm out there!"

Users will be able to designate an email as being sent in confidential mode, allowing the sender to revoke access to that email's content, either manually or by setting it to expire at a specific time.
