Google provides Gmail with new shortcut features

Google launches three new functions within Gmail for the creation of e-mail. The features are available to both Gmail and G Suite users.

The new Setting Shortcut features are added to the New Email Format window and are designed to help users correct and edit errors more quickly.

For example, it is now possible to use a shortcut to delete a text (strikethrough). The button is located on the right side of the menu. With this, Google is able to accommodate users who want to easily express a thought change in an e-mail. Delete is a visual indication that something has been completed or to suggest a change. We understand that this functionality is crucial to write emails quickly and efficiently, Google explains in a blog post.

In addition, it is now possible to undo actions. An efficient action for when you accidentally delete a piece of text, for example, when it should have been copied. The two undo and redo buttons are indicated by a curved backward and forward arrow respectively. These are located on the left side of the menu.

EML files

In addition, Gmail users can now more efficiently download e-mails from the Internet as EML files. These files are recognized by email clients such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Google claims that it allows users to view Gmail content, along with other attachments within these clients. Downloaded e-mails can also be added as attachments in e-mails.

From now on, users can download a message as an EML file from the three-point menu, by clicking on Download message at the bottom. In the past, this action was less efficient. Then the action could be performed by clicking on View original and then downloading it as an EML file. This route took more than one action than is currently the case.
