Ah 2009…turning five, finally shedding that beta label, and adding more than 40 new features. As we wind down after a busy year, here’s a look back at a handful of our favorite additions to Gmail. We hope you enjoy trying them out as much as we enjoyed building them.
- Tasks, onto your phone and out of Labs
- An improved mobile experience, including push Gmail and a complete redesign
- Four new themes to make Gmail sparkle
- Offline Gmail and its graduation from Labs
- Drag and drop labels
- More fast previews, including PowerPoint and TIFF
- Multi-select attachments for faster, smoother file sharing
- A way to eliminate duplicate contacts with a single button
- More storage for less moolah
- Lots of new labs experiments, including undo send, automatic message translation, and “Got the wrong bob?“
On behalf of the entire Gmail team, happy holidays! See you next year.
