Google Gmail has lately been enjoying some popularity in the news. First, it was about the redesigned user interface. Then, the elimination of manual typing through the imminent launching of Smart Compose.
And now the tech giant is adding another new feature that will remind you to reply to emails you may have missed (and which you’ve received a few days ago). Furthermore, it can nudge the user to follow up on emails for which they haven’t received a response.
This is an AI-powered function, so the intention isn’t for it to be annoying, but useful. Hopefully it will be able to discern exactly which are the most important emails for you and only nudge you regarding those.
In any case, nudging is on by default for users with the new Gmail interface, but you can turn it off if it gets too much. Just go into the settings and uncheck one or both of those boxes.
The feature is expected to start rolling out within the next three days
