Gmail Labs features

Google's Gmail packs a large number of extraordinary characteristics to help keep you gainful and composed, incorporating the new inbox tabs, customized names, and Google Drive incorporation. However one of Gmail's greatest preferences is the additional characteristics you can include through Gmail Labs. 

Assuming that you're not acquainted with it, Labs is a piece of Gmail where Google includes trial characteristics you can go for. A little dosage of brave is obliged, be that as it may. Labs instruments some of the time wait or get full-fledged Gmail characteristics, yet they can additionally break or be ceased without cautioning. At the end of the day, you can't depend on Labs examinations to dependably be there. 

To start with things first: Enabling Labs characteristics 

When we jump in, here's a speedy preparation on the most proficient method to empower Gmail Labs tests. 

To start with, click on the settings geartooth in the upper right-hand corner of Gmail and select Settings starting from the drop menu. Next, click on the "Labs" tab and you'll see a rundown of all accessible Labs in sequential order request. (Any Labs characteristics you've recently empowered those will appear in a divide record first.) 

To empower a trial, essentially click the Enable radio catch to the right of the characteristic's name, and afterward span down to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes. Simple!

Mark as read button

If you’re struggling to keep up to your Inbox Zero New Year’s resolution, here’s how I do things: at the end of every day I click the select all checkbox at the top of the Inbox and then mark all my email as read. Inbox. Zero.

Okay, maybe that’s cheating a little, but it works for me. Of course, life would be a lot easier Gmail included a “mark as read” button rather than requiring you to right-click or dig into the More menu button to find the option.

Thank goodness for the “Mark as Read Button” in Labs. As the name suggests, enabling it will create a discrete “Mark as Read” button at the top of the inbox window once you've selected one or more messages—simple, but effective.

Undo Send

There’s nothing worse in the world of email than the accidental email send. Whether it’s a wisecrack delivered to an unintended recipient, an incomplete message, or simply incorrectly addressing the recipient, it’s all bad. Fortunately, Google Labs has a remedy dubbed "Undo Send." Undo Send gives you up to 30 seconds after you’ve pressed send to call your email back—no harm, no foul.

Once it's enabled, a little notification bubble with a link to "Undo" appears at the top of the Gmail window after you send a message. Again: Easy!

Enabling this particular Lab experiment takes a bit of extra work, however, as the feature straddles the world between Labs and a full-fledged Gmail feature in Gmail. Once you’ve enabled “Undo Send” in Labs, open the Settings options once again. Scroll down under the General tab until you see “Undo Send.”

Next, click the check box next to “Enable Undo Send” if it isn’t enabled already. Click the drop-down menu underneath it and select the amount of time you’d like for your undo send grace period. Finally, scroll down to the bottom of the settings page and click the “Save Changes” button.

Green robot

Green robot is a really simple, but handy experiment that lets you know when your chat contacts are on on a mobile device, cluing you in to expect shorter or delayed responses. This experiment displays a little robot icon next to your contact's name in the Gmail chat window if they're on a mobile device.

Note that this lab only works if you are using Gmail’s old chat interface rather than the new Hangouts format. Google has yet to force all Gmail users over to Hangouts, so this lab still works—at least for now. If you’d like to switch back to Gmail chat from Hangouts (PC only), click on your name at the top of the Hangouts/chat window in Gmail. At the bottom of the drop down menu that appears, click Revert to old chat.
