Here are the new features Google is working on for Gmail


Gmail just turned 10, and it has evolved a lot over the years. That evolution isn’t going to stop, so what new things can we expect? A few screenshots leaked that show more tabs, a new pin system, and a new snooze feature.

Last year, Google introduced tabs, which include Social, Promotions, Forums, and Updates. A future update is likely to include additional tabs such as Travel, Purchases, and Finance. I’m not a big fan of the tabs, so we will have to see how this works out.


The pin feature looks pretty good. This allows you to “pin” any emails to remain at the top until you “unpin” them. This is perfect for those that get tons of emails each day. I can’t tell you how many times I said to myself that I will respond to that later and only forget. This will be a big help.

Lastly, a new snooze feature is in the works. Emails that you snooze will show as read in your inbox, but after a certain amount of time, they will go back to the top and show as unread. The time frame is selectable from hours to weeks and there is no limit to the snoozing.

I am totally digging new pin and snooze features, but not so much the tabs feature. What do you guys think?
